COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Some young girls now know what it takes to become an entrepreneur.
The participants graduated from a teen summer youth workshop tonight during a ceremony at the Columbus Marriott in Uptown.
They learned formal and professional etiquette, entrepreneurship, and social advancement.
Monika Thornton, the founder of Powerful Beginnings, and Helping Hands Personal Errand Service hosted the workshop.
"With the community, we want to get the word out that kids can learn about entrepreneurship, they can start their own business at a young age," Thornton said. "We incorporated three entrepreneurs that are 15, 16, and even 14 that have successful businesses at their age now. And this will basically let other teens know that they don't have to be an adult to start their own business, they can start their business now."
Event organizers also say they hope the event also shows the community how important entrepreneurship and etiquette is to our youth.
