The Youth Economy Agency has formally launched its Mentorship Programme with the goal of developing the holistic entrepreneur.

Intended to provide young Saint Lucians with a special economic space to turn hobbies into entrepreneurship, and skills into business, the agency aims to carve out a unique space in the general economic system for youth entrepreneurship and business growth.

Further to its mission, YEA will conduct a six-month mentorship programme to support approximately 100 entrepreneurs between the ages of 15 and 35.

Twenty mentors with expertise and practical experience in a number of areas will meet with young entrepreneurs on a weekly basis to provide guidance, support, and practical solutions to promote a new category of indigenous business.
