Biz Camp Sponsored by Alterna Savings

Alterna is proud to sponsor a unique after-school activity for teens, Alterna Biz Camp. Hosted in partnership with the Learning Enrichment Foundation, Biz Camp provides young people between the ages 15 and 18 the opportunity to learn about running their own business. Over a 3-6 week period, the participants are educated about marketing, accounting, business planning and more.

At the end of Biz Camp, participants create a business plan and 30-second pitch, which they present to a panel of judges. Prizes range from $500, $750 and $1,000, and all receive a $100 honorarium on graduation from the program.

“One of the keys to the program’s success is that we’re enabling our youth to do something that they’re passionate about. It’s not about just getting a job – it’s about helping them design and create a life.” – Learning Enrichment Foundation
