Kaylee Quinney, Bill Quinney's granddaughter, attended the Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp (AYEC), August 14 to 20 of this year.
AYEC gives youth some basic entrepreneurial experience in a positive and supportive environment. Kaylee was part of a group of 54 young people who participated in this year's camp.
Each group was to select a product, set up a business, learn how to negotiate a loan, manufacture and sell the product and wrap up the business.
Kaylee's group selected a memory book product, which was a pictorial record of the camp's significant events. Despite some production problems, Kaylee's group was successful and their company earned a profit of $900. Each group member received $50 after the bank was repaid.
It was a very good experience for Kaylee and she thanked the club for sponsoring her.reported in the Weekly Westerner bulletin by Larry Doyle
