The Creative Makers program is the latest set of events Tomaree Youth Community Action (TYCA) has been running to provide Port Stephens youth with the opportunity to develop small business idea and then create small functioning business from these ideas
The eager group of budding business owners developed their businesses, created their products, promoted and then sold their items at selected market venues across Port Stephens and Newcastle with the help and support of TYCA, Salamander Bay Recycling and Hunter Futurepreneurs
TYCA’s Creative Makers where supported and mentored while they completed their business training and develop and made their products to sell.
This is program is the complete package containing training, mentoring, support and financial assistance to make sure no one was disadvantaged and could achieve their outcomes.
Participants I spoke to were successful in their businesses and had sold most, if not all of their items while they enjoyed telling those who asked how they had developed their ideas and made their products.
“The program is great, and I have learnt a lot about the making of my products and how to budget, market and display them. I have really enjoyed the training program and was amazed at how much money I could make with my ideas and a little hard work”. Jaiden, Creative Maker Participant
TYCA looks forward to running this program again. If you are interested in doing this program register your interest here.
