Youth in Business

Preparing the next generation of entrepreneurs for success is vital to the prosperity of our community. TBC encourages students to join these programs and take their first steps into the journey of running their own businesses.


Full-time students are more than capable entrepreneurs, which is why TBC gives students between the ages of 15 and 29 the opportunity to run their own small business venture over the summer months. Successful candidates will receive a $3,000 grant to help with start-up costs, while being able to bank all the profits of their venture from the summer! You will also receive in-person business training and help developing a business plan, guidance and mentorship while gaining valuable business and leadership skills.
