The College of the Rockies is excited to partner with Selkirk College and Kootenay Association for Science and Technology (KAST) to offer a region-wide Kootenay Youth Entrepreneurship Program starting this fall! It is a multi‐faceted ongoing program that aims to introduce entrepreneurial skills to youth across the Kootenay Region, both at high school and college level, as well as being open to youth outside of educational institutions. This program aims to expose youth aged 16‐30 — free of charge — to the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and provide skills training and experiences to aid in skills and career development.
