PICS to launch youth program

Program to support young potential entrepreneurs throughout Lower Mainland

Progressive Intercultural Community Services (PICS) is set to launch a youth entrepreneurship program this month.

The program supports young potential entrepreneurs throughout the Lower Mainland, by helping guide them from pre-launch to growth and expansion through training and mentoring, and by providing business resources.

To be eligible for the program, participants must be between 15 and 30 years old, a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or refugee, legally entitled to work in Canada and in need of assistance to overcome employment barriers.

Information sessions are set for Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2:30-4 p.m., and Dec. 16 from 10:30 a.m.-noon, both at PICS head office (205-12725 80 Ave).

Seating is limited, and pre-registration is required – email deshpal@grewal@pics.bc.ca or sunil.rawat@pics.bc.ca
