The program helps students set up their own businesses for the summer. All that is required is a good business idea, commitment and hard work.

Summer Company provides hands-on business training from successful business mentors, and allows participants to discover if they have what it takes to be an entrepreneur.

The program is open to students 15 to 29 years old who will be returning to school in the fall. To be considered for participation, students must submit an application and detailed business plan. The application deadline is May 6, 2017, but the sooner you apply the better – there is a limited number of students accepted.

Participants will complete 12 hours of training and receive up to $1,500 to cover start-up costs,  and up to $1,500 upon program completion.

This is a great opportunity for students to explore self-employment, develop their entrepreneurial skills, and make money.
