Spotlight_2021NEW

Brighton Youth Services’ Growing Grads Program is set to launch its new Young Entrepreneur Program in June. The workshops will be held virtually and will consist of a series of hour-long classes that will teach and empower youth how to build their own business. Young adults ages 19 and under are encouraged to apply.


After the workshops, participants will be eligible to sell their product on an online marketplace. Interested buyers will then be able to purchase directly from the seller.


“This is a class for young adults in Brighton who are passionate about entrepreneurship or just simply want to learn more,” said Tawnya Russell, Manager of Brighton Youth Services. “We hear of so many great business ideas among youth in our community, so we hope we can help guide those young entrepreneurs through this program.”

If you have questions, please contact Tawyna Russell at 303-655-2123 or  trussell@brightonco.gov.
