July 19, 2022 – RDÉE PEI: The Francophone apprentice-entrepreneurs from this year’s edition of the Jeunes millionaires Young Millionaires program are ready to sell a wide variety of products this summer. There’s everything from jewelry, artistic decorations and sea glass canvases to slime, beverages and Mr. Freezes, to specialty breads, stickers and pottery.
“The 11 young people enrolled in this French version of the Young Millionaires program have started nine small businesses, from Souris to Evangeline,” says Sam Valois, who is coordinating the program for RDÉE PEI this summer. “We encourage everyone to support their entrepreneurial efforts by purchasing their products.
Some of the youth will sell their products from home or via Facebook pages, but most will go to public sales venues (farmers’ markets, flea markets, beaches, etc.) or special events (festivals, carnivals, etc.) to access a customer base that’s already there. Among other locations, the participants will be able to go to activities such as:
• The Crapaud Exhibition on July 29;
• The Farmers’ Market in Souris (Saturdays);
• Acadian Day in Tignish on August 14;
• Acadian Day in Abram-Village on August 15;
• The Charlottetown Farmers’ Market (Wednesdays and Saturdays).
