The Youth Ventures Program has started again in the Deer Lake area. Anyone between the ages of 12 and 29 who is interested in starting a business can contact regional program co-ordinator Justin Coish for assistance. The program can assist with idea generation, business plans, marketing and promotion. The benefits of running your own business are many. For example, you can create your own terms of employment, make money doing something you are good at, take your idea and turn it into a profit and get involved in your community. Justin can be reached at (709) 635-3861 or by email at You can also visit the Youth Ventures website at!” Please click here to see the program poster.
