Venture Start Up - Presented by RAYEC

Monday, May 10, 2021 (All day) to Monday, August 16, 2021 (All day)

  

RAYEC will be back in 2022

We all miss the Rotary Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp and would like nothing more than to spend a week of our summer at Eagles Nest Ranch but it just isn't meant to be this year.  However, we have a great new program for you to get working on business knowledge and be ready for RAYEC 2022!

MHC Venture Start Up  |  Presented by RAYEC

Venture Start Up (VSU) program is an entrepreneurship program for youth that are not only interested in learning about business but putting their ideas into action. VSU has been developed by Medicine Hat College (MHC) with the support of RBC. The program provides theory, skill development, mentorship and practical experience.

Youth will be able to access the learning modules virtually and work on various components over several weeks. The youth will be supported by weekly meetings with the course facilitator and can ask questions anytime to a business coach. During the program, youth will also be assigned a business mentor - someone they can talk to about their ideas and get assistance in building their business.

Once the learning modules are complete, the youth will be tasked to run their business in their local community, perhaps at a farmers market, virtual marketplace or other method of their choosing. They will still be supported by their business mentor during this time. Once the end of the VSU program is reached, it will be time to celebrate learnings and reap the rewards as the teams can earn prizes as well as make money in their business.

 

Who should register?

Youth aged 12 to 16 who are self-starters, motivated and enjoy creating something new.  Youth are encouraged to work in a team with one or two local friends.
