Students learn to be their own boss this summer

By Michelle Janzen


The Orangeville & Area Small Business Enterprise Centre (SBEC), in partnership with the Province of Ontario, is once again offering the popular Summer Company program.

Summer Company provides local youth with funding and guidance as they start up and run their own businesses during the summer months.

Students aged 15 to 29 can receive grants of up to $3,000 to make their businesses a reality.

This summer, eight enterprising Dufferin area students will be operating businesses in a wide range of sectors including retail and food service, marketing consulting, beverage and furniture manufacturing, face painting, auto detailing and student odd jobs.

With four of the students coming from the Shelburne area, here is some information on each of them so that we can support them and help make their business successful.
