The Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation has selected 11 students, representing 10 businesses for the summer youth business program.
The youth based businesses include three landscapers, a recycled jewelry designer, video production, coffee roaster, a shawl designer, house and babysitting, farm fresh eggs and a souvenir chocolate maker.
JJAB’s Assets In Action program is working with the youth entrepreneurs to build relationships with customers and promote their businesses to the public. The program has also worked with local businesses to mentor the youth in their area of interest, to aid in success of their efforts.
The LACDC program sponsors the businesses with grants ranging from $200-$400 and donations are currently being sought to fund additional businesses. Those wishing to make a small donation can direct them to the Youth Business Grant Program at 190 Central Park Square.
Those interested in accessing the youth businesses can contact 695-9139.
