What is a side hustle?

A way to earn money outside of your ‘9 to 5’ job or routine – i.e, school or work. It allows you to make more money that’ll give you the freedom to pursue your passions, buy things you need or want, and lower the worry of not having any savings. Essentially it is a business that you own and operate! 

How do I start a side hustle?

This program is for youth who are willing to explore entrepreneurship. The program is available online and participants will learn how to develop a business model, set up a financial plan, develop a marketing plan, and understand their plan so well they will be ready to pitch it to an audience. If they choose to further develop their pitch, they can present their business idea to an audience and panel of judges ‘Dragon’s Den’ style and compete for cash prizes.

Program length and distribution may vary depending on your school.
