The first event for the Brock Youth Centre’s newest program – aimed at young people interested in entrepreneurship – is set for Dec. 6 in Beaverton.
Entrepreneurship Development Generating Employment (EDGE) offers individuals between the ages of 18 and 29 the opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship, employability, networking and more.
The first meet-up for the new program will take place at Colourful Nights, 390 Simcoe St., Beaverton, starting at 7 p.m. on Dec. 6. According to the Brock Youth Centre‘s website, events will be rotated through the five North Durham communities.
On the Eventbrite page for the event, organizers say the get-together is for young people who have finished school, “have an awesome business idea, have always wanted to be their own boss, or are unsure of what to do next.”
The event is free to attend but those interested are encouraged to register online.
As per their website, the Brock Youth Centre focuses on entrepreneurship development for high school students and young adults.
“Whether their goal is to provide a product or service for North Durham residents, or to look beyond those borders and set up a global business, we provide training and mentorship every step of the way,” reads their About Us section.
“For those who want experience running a business before they take the leap into their own initiative, we hire them to work in one of our social enterprises.”
