Saskatchewan’s 4-H Entrepreneurship project is helping youth learn the necessary skills to build a business.
High school students from Durness 4-H Multi Club are each building a business in their fields of interest. Grade 12 student Mikayla Flint is working on a equine business providing tack for horses.
“I’ve been contacting lots of people in the industry to get ideas and then using this project learn about the business and financial side of it.”
Each person is paired with a mentor that will guide them along in the process of entrepreneurship. Regional Business Accelerator Coordinator Tess Wack says that they want them to build a business and make it operational.
“We’ll find some different training on YouTube, different tutorials and a bunch of different resources. We’re trying to teach them a very holistic approach to starting their own business.”
The project began in November and will be showcased in June.
