Really, the only way to become wealthy is to be in control of your own income.
Youth enterprise has always been important to Community Futures (CFDC). We believe that youth in this area have the potential to develop an idea into a thriving business. CFDC has the resources and tools to help people succeed in becoming entrepreneurs.
During March Break (March 14-18, 2011) CFDC is hosting the award-winning ‘Business Builders’ youth workshop, which is a fun and exciting program designed to teach youth (aged 10-13) all about becoming entrepreneurs.
After the five days of Business Builders, participants will have formed sufficient business plans with which real enterprises could be started.
The Business Builders workshop runs Monday through Friday of March break, from 9am to 3pm. This workshop is free of charge and participants will receive all the materials they need.
Applications can be submitted to Community Futures (in person, by mail, or by fax) until Friday, March 4th.
