YouthQuest students will be creating businesses and selling their goods and services at a program-wide event in March. However, before they do, they must first learn how to plan and run a business.
To assist them in their efforts, YouthQuest activities will focus on building business sense, financial know-how and entrepreneurial skills during the month of November.
To extend your child’s learning beyond YouthQuest, families can use some of the following activities to keep youth engaged at home in the evenings and weekends:
FOR OLDER STUDENTS
YouthQuest’s middle and high school programs focus on career- and college-prep activities that are both fun and engaging. For example, students at International Academy of Flint will be applying to college and learning about college life. Parents can reinforce these activities at home by helping their students prepare for college admission tests, find and apply for scholarships and set up college interviews.
YouthQuest is made possible through the generous support of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and 21st Century Community Learning Centers.
