Teen Maker Marketplace


Thanks for your interest but this program is full. We may run it again so keep your eyes open for updates!

Calling high school artists and makers! Have you ever wanted to make money from your creations? Sign up for the Teen Maker Marketplace and we can help you make it happen. You'll receive community service hours for our weekly meetings and while preparing stock to sell as you learn the ins and outs of creating a small business. After your training, we will be holding a vendor craft show for you to use your new skills and make money from your hard work!

Apply to be a part of this program with the webform below by SUNDAY MARCH 12TH at 11:59pm.

Interviews will take place over the week of March Break over Zoom (March 13th - March 17th).

Successful applicants will be notified on Monday March 20th so that you will have approximately one month to start building up stock (art, jewelry, crafts, etc.) to sell at the vendor show before the program begins on Monday April 24th. You will receive a lump sum of community service hours for building up your stock of items to sell.
