Community business mentors are needed to assist with the after-school Young Entrepreneurs Academy program for Palatine Township Elementary District 15 junior high school students. The program, led by the Palatine Area Chamber of Commerce, again will have mentors working with students and assisting them in creating business plans. For six weeks, the mentors will provide guidance and feedback as students think through all aspects of their business creation, write their plans and prepare their investor panel presentations. Mentors must commit to eight weeks for 60 minutes per week, with continued out-of-class support through email and phone. If interested, contact chamber Executive Director Steven Gaus at (847) 359-7200.
