January 24th 2011 Host Lynette Mullen Interviews Kathy Miller and Susan Seaman About Youth Entrepreneurship Education.

Economic Fuel is working collaboratively with the Humboldt County Office of Education to support formal entrepreneurial education in our local high schools.

About 20 students attended on each day for AEDC’s Teen Business Fair at the Boys and Girls Club Teen Center in Eureka where they learned how to write their business plan, or learn skills to start a business. E-Club Members from HSU worked with the kids one-on-one to build their plans.

Participating students came from schools all over Humboldt County, including Academy of the Redwoods, Arcata High School, Eureka High School, North Coast Prepatory Academy, Six Rivers Charter School, Zane Middle School and Zoe Barnum.
