City Festivals in collaboration with Touring Mentors, recently organized a special event for Juneteenth weekend to to support African American youth in pursuing their entrepreneurial dreams. The workshop, held at the Barrymore Hotel, provided participants with valuable skills and resources to kick-start their business ventures.

One of the most remarkable aspects of the workshop was that all participating youth were granted free attendance, ensuring that financial limitations did not hinder their ability to benefit from the program.

The workshop brought together seasoned business mentors from Dream Up, White & Black Consulting, Black Owned Connect, Mahogany Kids Foundation, and Tash Johnson & Co. These mentors shared their expertise and guided the youth through an enriching experience focused on public speaking, marketing, and branding.

Throughout the workshop, the young entrepreneurs had the unique opportunity to represent their individual brands at AfroCAN Fest, a renowned cultural event celebrating progress in African-American community. This exposure allowed them to showcase their skills, products, and services to a broader audience while gaining valuable real-world experience.

A highlight of the workshop was a friendly competition that provided the participants with the chance to put their best foot forward. The competition offered them the opportunity to win a grant to register their limited liability company (LLC), develop a website, and access essential marketing resources. This invaluable support aims to eliminate some of the financial barriers that often hinder aspiring entrepreneurs from launching their businesses.

The City Festivals team expressed their delight with the success of the workshop and the positive impact it had on the participants. The organization remains committed to nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit among youth and providing them with the necessary tools and resources to succeed in their chosen fields.

The workshop not only imparted practical skills but also instilled a sense of confidence and empowerment in the young participants. By equipping them with the knowledge and opportunities to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams, City Festivals and its partners are actively contributing to creating a more inclusive and diverse business landscape.

The success of this initiative serves as a testament to the power of community collaboration and mentorship, showcasing how organizations and individuals can come together to uplift and empower the next generation of entrepreneurs.

City Festivals plans to continue supporting aspiring young entrepreneurs and hopes to expand similar programs in the future.
