Area high school students and their teachers can learn what it is like to be an entrepreneur at a free workshop at The University of Scranton on Dec. 18.

At the Youth Entrepreneurship Day workshop, entrepreneurs and educators will guide the students through the basic steps involved in developing a business plan in order to develop the students’ understanding of business, the economy, and the role of entrepreneurship in our society.

The day-long program begins at 9 a.m. and includes both breakfast and lunch. During the workshop, students will develop a business plan outline for their ideas. After returning to their classroom, teams of two to three students can further develop their outlines into a complete business plans for submission to the Entrepreneurship Challenge, a regional and statewide competition of EconomicsPennsylvania.

Sponsors of the Youth Entrepreneurship Day program are Wall Street West, The Tom Hesser Auto Group, The University of Scranton Center for Economic Education and EconomicsPennsylvania.
