CHANGE, Inc. will open and operate an Entrepreneurial Program, targeting youth aged 14-18, to address a number of the risk behaviors prevalent in Hancock and Brooke County, most importantly limited employment.

The Entrepreneurial Program will give at-risk youth in Hancock and Brooke County the ability to learn design media, marketing and basic business skills that would help them further their education or join the emerging design media field.
