Teen Entrepreneurs Network
SCA participated in the West Southern Pines Civic Club's annual Teen Entrepreneurs Network summer program. Businesses and individuals agree to hire and pay a teen to do a job for the summer. The process is structured like a "real world" employment situation.
Mineral Rocks T-Shirt Company
Mineral Springs Youth Business
One goal of the Mineral Springs Improvement Council's summer program for youth 11 to 15 years old was gaining entrepreneurial skills. The youth decided they wanted to learn by creating a business, which turned out to be Mineral Rocks. The company has had good sales and is profitable.
Offering training and workshops to promote financial stability
We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps us ensure that youth are better prepared to manage the financial situations they find themselves in. We are invested in an innovative approach that empowers our youth and delivers the support they need, when they need it.
