This program provides the youth in our community with the skills necessary to succeed as an entrepreneur. The fundamentals of starting and operating a business, developing a business plan, obtaining financing, marketing a product or service and developing an effective accounting system will be covered. Our faculty and staff recognize the interdisciplinary value of entrepreneurship and weave it throughout this program. The skills learned in our entrepreneurship classes are vital for the success of any business -- large or small, public or private, corporate or not-for-profit, local or global.
