The Young Millionaires Program is coordinated throughout the province by Central Development Corporation for over 20 years and is traditionally offered throughout the Island by a variety of regional partners.
The Young Millionaires Program provides an opportunity for young people across PEI to acquire strong entrepreneurial, self-confidence and adaptability skills. The program gives youth ages 8 – 16 the opportunity to learn about business, their community and themselves.
Successful applicants will receive a grant of up to $100 ($150 for partnerships) to commence their own business and run it through the summer. Funding for the program is provided mainly through the ACOA Business Development Program as well as in-kind contributions from the regional partners. Since 1991 over 3,500 Island youth have participated in the program.
