Youth Enterprise Program first day workshop

The first day of the Youth enterprise Program was a roaring success due to the excellent facilitation skills of Kaylene Langford from Startup Creative and the energy of the participants.

Creative ideas and experiences were shared between a diverse group of budding entrepreneurs which resulted in a fun and stimulating atmosphere.

The content of the presentation was relevant and practical which in turn motivated the participants to thoroughly engage and take part in activities and collaboration.

Overall everyone provided positive feedback and look forward to continuing with the Youth Enterprise Program 2014-2015 with Visible Ink.
