STORE 54 – YOUTH ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAM
Store 54 opened its doors on July 24th 2007 and provides business start up assistance to youth.
For most people, “thinking about starting a business” is the closet they will ever come to being an Entrepreneur. Often this is because questions like “how do I do it” and “where do I get information” are enough to make us “think no more". The TRACKS to Business Program (Store 54) can provide answers to these questions and more. Why not take advantage of this low risk, low cost opportunity for young people who have a business idea and who want to take advantage of an amazing program!
