Rotary Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp 2021

In a ‘normal’ year, Rotary would be telling us about the Rotary Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp (RAYEC) that is held in August. Sadly, for the second year they have to cancel the summer camp with hopes of it returning in 2022. For 2021 they are offering the MHC Venture Start Up | Presented by RAYEC. It is an entrepreneurship program for youth that are not only interested in learning about business but putting their ideas into action. VSU has been developed by Medicine Hat College (MHC) with the support of RBC. The program provides theory, skill development, mentorship and practical experience. Youth learn the business concepts in an online environment but create and run a business in their local community.

The VSU is offered at no cost for the participants thanks to the generous support of RBC.

A few more details:

· Youth between the ages of 12-16 are eligible

· Youth can form a business team with a few local friends

· Takes place May - August

· Learning Modules - May 10 to June 25

· Business Launch & Operations - June 25 to August 1 (businesses don’t need to run the entire time, just have operations/sales at some point in this timeframe)

· Celebration - August 16

Registration Deadline: May 5, 2021 Create your own summer job! Learn about business concepts and put them to the test running your own summer business. Best of all – it’s free (sponsored by RBC). Interested youth must register by May 6. Visit www.rotaryayec.ca for more information and online registration.
