Why not the mayor (go straight to the top!), someone at the business development office, education office, job centre, school, recreation centre Your first challenge might be organizing a group of friends and getting the programme up and running.

“Sounds good, and fun too, but I don’t have any ideas
Write a list of things you like to do, things you’re pretty good at.
“making people laugh”
“taking care of animals”
“keeping things tidy”
“Sounds fine, but I still don’t have any ideas”
Okay, have a look around! There are people who need things, from you!
What do they seem to need?
“Getting the garden tidied up”
“Learn to swim ”
“Coffee and cakes in unusual surroundings”
“A helping hand”
“Live music while waiting for the train”
“Freshly-baked bread on the caravan door on a sunny, summer morning at the campground”
Give them some thought. Talk with people Combine your ideas with new ones, mix and match. One + One = Four.
But most of all, don’t let anything stop you from moving ahead.
If you still haven’t come up with an idea for your summer entrepreneurship, don’t sweat.
