Preparations begin for young entrepreneurs

Now that spring is here, so begins the preparation of the Youth Business Grant Program.
The Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation is looking for businesses, individuals and organizations that can make a donation of any size, between $5 and $500 to benefit the program.
“We are promoting our local youth by creating young entrepreneurs; giving them an opportunity to experience, first hand and at a very young age, what it takes to start and grow a local business,” said LACDC Executive Director Scott Randall. “One hundred percent of all donations go directly to selected students.”
Building the financial base of the program is just one component, as the program will also look to build the foundation of the youth by pairing them up with business leaders from the community, with whom they share a vision.
Those wishing to be available for youth questions, particularly one in their field can impact the sustainability of their business.
Additional support can be made to youth, for those willing to hang posters or have YBGP business cards or listing available.
After donations are solicited from the community, the YBGP program will release the annual application for youth wishing to apply for the program.
