Does your area have such a business resource? Wow what a great idea. I bet they are certainly helping out a lot of young business owners.

Youth Ventures welcomes back returning entrepreneurs, and new participants (http://www.southerngazette.ca/index.cfm?iid=2569&sid=22131) - It’s shaping up to be a great year for Youth Ventures on the Burin Peninsula!

We have visited most of the schools on the peninsula and have potential participants from Lamaline, South East Bight, Terrenceville and everywhere in between. Along with these new entrepreneurs, we have a number of returning ones as well.

In case your just tuning in, Youth Ventures is a not-for-profit organization that helps youth aged 12-29 start and run their own businesses. It can help with idea generation, business plans, marketing and promotions, financing, mentoring and anything else you might need.

Burin’s 14-year-old Jonathan Inkpen will be returning for his second summer with Youth Ventures this year. ‘Mr. Mo’s Lawn Care Service’ has become quickly popular in the local area.

His tireless promotion, organization skills and attention to detail has landed Jonathan many loyal customers whom he is looking forward to serving this summer.
