Young entrepreneurs sell their wares 10 December 2007

The Island’s Young Entrepreneurs, all participants in this year’s Junior Achievement Company Programme, will set up stalls to display and sell their wares to the public in the main hall at the Promenade Methodist Church in Douglas on Thursday 13 December from 4pm until 8pm.

The goods on sale are innovative products, including a Manx themed children’s entertainment pack, children’s activity book, educational board games, a Manx cookery book, drinks holders, paperweight lights, and many other novelty and Christmas items developed or marketed by young people running their own student companies.

There will be a Santa’s Grotto and face-painting for children.

Junior Achievement is a Manx educational charity which has been forging links between schools and business and industry for the past 25 years. Junior Achievement‘s purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy; to help educate young people about enterprise, business, and the economics of life.

Local individuals and businesses provide the necessary resources and time to implement the programmes offered by Junior Achievement.

Selling shares to raise capital, opening bank accounts, developing their own product lines, marketing strategies and sales campaigns are all integral parts of the Company Programme, conducted with the help of link teachers and volunteer advisers from business and industry.

Trade fairs are an important part of the programme, which culminates in the final judging and awards presentation evening on 15 April 2008. The winning company will go on to represent the Isle of Man at the European Finals to be held in Sweden in July.

The success of all of Junior Achievement Programmes relies on the dedication and commitment of the teachers and volunteers; roles that are extremely rewarding and can provide great individual development opportunities.

To find out more about this event and other Junior Achievement events, programmes and activities please contact Junior Achievement Isle of Man on 834761 or e-mail enquiries@jaiom.im
