Now Hiring: Youth Ventures Regional Coordinator

 

Youth Ventures is looking for extraordinary people to join our team.

Youth Ventures began in 1992 on the Northern Peninsula with 2 participants. Since then, the program has grown and employs 23 Regional Coordinators across Newfoundland and Labrador who help students start businesses.

Designed for students 12-29, Youth Ventures works with 300 students and assists with the start-up of 200 businesses each year. Since 1992 the program has helped over 6000 young people explore entrepreneurship.

Starting a business can be a career path, or a spare change kind-of operation. It’s all about taking the hobbies and passion participants have, along with the support of Youth Ventures, and making money by doing what they love to do. Youth Ventures has helped start lawn-moving businesses, bake shops, and small-time tech firms that create apps.

Youth Ventures Regional Coordinators help participants identify an idea, create a business plan, do market research and point them in the direction of financing (if needed) to get the business up and running. Each of the 23 Regional Coordinators are employed for 16 weeks in a dynamic position. Coordinators counsel entrepreneurs, give presentations to schools, and community organizations, organize events and manage the Youth Ventures programs for their region. It’s an all encompassing type of job that is challenging and rewarding.
