Youth Entrepreneurship

This program’s origins lie in the need for buyers to carry on our businesses whose owners wish to retire.  The goal is to encourage youth in the Forest Area Schools to consider entrepreneurship in Forest County as an option for their career/profession, either after high school or after college.  The means of accomplishing this include working with the Forest Area School District to develop entrepreneurial curriculum in grades 9 – 12 and with the IDA/IDC to develop a complementary package of support for those students who graduate with a ready-to-implement business plan.
