Young people ages 14 to 17 who want to learn the basics of how to start and grow a business can participate in a free workshop sponsored by the Urban Media Foundation’s Youth Entreprenuership Project. Called Junior Business Camp, the program takes place Aug. 12 and 13 as part of the West Coast Expo planned for the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Young people who pre-register for the workshop by July 15, will be entered into a drawing for a $100 grant to help toward their new business.
At Junior Business Camp, participants will learn about banking, where to find cash for their business and how to start a company for less than $100. Participants will also learn how to write a business plan.
Classes are held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Aug. 12 and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Aug. 13.
