Additional Announcements

The Write-Right Business Program (WRBP)

WRBP provides guidance to entrepreneurs who are passionate about a cause on how to start a non-profit in Georgia, as well as the sustainability of the non-profit through pecuniary resources, grants, and funding. The program also provides mentorship and guidance to youth wanting to be entrepreneurs. Many people want to start their own businesses but lack the skills and resources to become an entrepreneur. However, entrepreneurship paves the way for generating wealth and higher earnings. The benefits of owning a business extend beyond the business that is established. Entrepreneurs improve the lives of individuals, communities, and the overall economy. Entrepreneurship promotes innovation and self-reliance, as well as generates employment opportunities.

Georgia Youth and Adult Entrepreneurship Workshop

Some parents and their teenage children want to start a small business or nonprofit organization but require assistance in developing entrepreneurship and business skills. In addition, there are critical legal documents that must be filed in order to establish a small business and nonprofit in Georgia. Why is entrepreneurship important for youth? Entrepreneurship encourages the growth mindset, a belief in one’s own ability to succeed through making and learning from their mistakes. On Saturday, August 19, 2023, we will host a Georgia Youth and Adult Entrepreneurship Workshop. During the workshop, we will cover all the information required to start a Georgia small business, nonprofit and obtain a 501(c)3 tax-exempt status with the IRS. Participants will receive a 30-minute lunch break at which time our staff will serve complimentary food to all attendees. Vegetarian meal options will be available.

We request that all attendees wear masks; however, masks are not mandated. Participants will, however, be required to wash their hands and social distance when possible.
