Youth Biz, a partnership between Ozark Heritage Region economic development group, University of Missouri Extension, Ozark Action, and Missouri State University Small Business Development Center, has been offered in Howell County since Spring 2007. The mission of Youth Biz is develop entrepreneurial skills in area youth in hopes that they will stay in our area after attending high school or college and start a business.
The vision for the Youth Biz is for students graduating from high schools in the South Central Region to have the opportunity to learn how to start a business. This program is designed to teach “hands-on” entrepreneurship to high school seniors. The Youth Biz program teaches the basics of entrepreneurship and small business development as well as provides funding to each high school work group for the purpose of developing a business idea or model.
Program coordinators work with high school business teachers in order to provide school time to work on a business plan and project; and also provide mentors to the students, as well as guest speakers to the classroom. This program is designed for the 24 school districts within the seven-county Ozark Heritage Region.
University of Missouri Extension provides equal opportunity to all participants in extension programs and activities, and for all employees and applicants for employment on the basis of their demonstrated ability and competence without discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, genetic information, disability, or protected veteran status.
