About this grant

This renewal grant will provide support to Mott Community College for the Teen CEO Initiative, which offers a seven-week entrepreneurial learning and leadership experience for 45 disadvantaged youth between the ages of 14-18. The objectives of the program are to: 1) provide participants with the competencies needed to operate a business, including business plan development; 2) offer additional skill-building opportunities through mentorships and job shadowing; 3) help students develop a higher education career pathway plan; and 4) offer a program track dedicated to encouraging entrepreneurship around applied technology and manufacturing. Upon completion, 15 participants will be eligible to receive $1,000 in seed money to launch their venture.
