SBA and the Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration have teamed up to provide entrepreneurship training to students enrolled in the Job Corps program. This program, called the Start Young Initiative, will help young people learn the skills they need to start their own businesses.
Mentors and counselors from SBA’s resource partners will provide the training, which will last 6-9 weeks in select cities throughout the country. The primary goal of this initiative is by the end of specialized training, the Job Corps participants are provided with the fundamental knowledge about small business opportunities and resources available to them, thus encouraging economic self-sufficiency and personal growth within their local community.
