Teen girls create websites at entrepreneurship camp in Warren


WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Young women from Trumbull County are learning how to use technology to better market themselves as entrepreneurs at the Inspiring Minds Summer Camp.

The Youngstown Business Incubator program teaches girls, ages 14-18, how to create websites over a two-day camp at the Raymond John Wean Foundation in Warren.

The goal is to show them that website development is not as hard as it seems and becoming an entrepreneur is possible, regardless of your circumstance.

“To get them to think about entrepreneurship in the young age will not only impact their lives and their families, but our community as a whole will keep them inspired and will keep them wanting to help others,” said Stephanie Gilchrist with Women in Entrepreneurship.

A $5,000 grant to the YBI helped make this event possible. The grant was from the AT&T’s Aspire Program, aimed at introducing business practices and STEM skills to young women.
