Want to be a Young Entrepreneur? Wigan Youth Zone launches its next Young Enterprise Programme

Wigan Youth Zone are launching their next Young Enterprise programme right now for members over the age of 15, every Thursday 4pm – 6pm.

Our team deliver the Young Enterprise Company programme which gives young people the opportunity to run a business in real life. Young people who join our enterprise team develop great leadership, time-management and finance skills. We also give members the chance to sell at trade stands throughout the UK and see their concepts and products designed and sold in the real world!

The project sees young people from the Youth Zone following an idea for a product from initial concept development right through to selling the product in a real marketplace, with support from some fantastic business advisors along the way.

Previous teams have included Cookie Mad, a team that came up with an ingenious mug with integrated cookie holder and Like Clockwork, the team that came up with a specialised clock for those with Autism. Members of both teams have had some fantastic opportunities and experiences due to their involvement with the project such as attending Retail Week Live, meeting famous business leaders and even Prince Harry – see below a few pics of Cookie Mad and their amazing adventures as part of the team..
