The StFX Extension Innovation and Enterprise Centre is pleased to announce the inaugural session of Summer Launch.  This program offers youth in Antigonish and Guysborough counties, entering into grades 8-12, the opportunity to start and operate their own business venture for the summer months.

Summer Launch will equip teens with the skills and resources needed to get their idea off the ground and manage it successfully throughout the summer break. All participants will receive training in the form of a specially created workshop, networking and mentorship opportunities, and an initial start-up grant.

This new and exciting program has been developed by staff at the StFX Extension Innovation and Enterprise Centre as a means of connecting with the youth of the region and encouraging them to explore their entrepreneurial potential.  All venture ideas are encouraged – so long as they are realistic and the participant is willing to work at making their idea a reality.

Summer Launch seeks to create activated youth that find innovative solutions to problems in their community, use entrepreneurial approaches in everyday living, and are empowered to spread this knowledge amongst their peer groups.

Act Soon: Deadline to Apply is April 30th, 2017
