Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute

CenterRuralDevelopment
Clay County students are building their business and entrepreneurial skills at The Center’s 2016 Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute (ELI) program. Grace Sink, a student at Oneida Baptist Institute, and John Sizemore, a student at Clay County High School, are building their business and entrepreneurial skills this summer at The Center for Rural Development’s 2016 Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute (ELI).

ELI, one of The Center’s summer youth leadership programs, gives participants an in-depth look at what it takes to start their own business venture — from idea development to building a prototype of their business concept.

“We have completely revamped the program to give young aspiring student entrepreneurs the skills they need to become successful business owners and entrepreneurs in Southern and Eastern Kentucky,” said Delaney Stephens, youth programs coordinator and community liaison for The Center. “Our students will still be forming a business idea and writing a business plan, but they will also be developing a prototype of their idea.”

The Center is partnering with the Kentucky Innovation Network in Richmond and the Community & Leadership Development Department at the University of Kentucky’s College of Agriculture, Food, and Environment. Most of the curriculum is based on the E-Discovery Program developed by UK’s Community & Leadership Development Department.

“For the first time, students will be working with 3D printers to produce a model prototype,” Stephens said. “The program this year will focus on idea development and how to sell that idea.”

The ELI program will be held on the campus of The Center in Somerset during the week of June 13-17. The program is open to high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors within The Center’s 45 county primary service area in Southern and Eastern Kentucky.

Members of the winning student team will earn a $3,500 renewable scholarship from Eastern Kentucky University.

Grace is the daughter of Ian and Jennifer Sink of Manchester. John is the son of Myrl and Leslie Sizemore of Manchester.

For more information on the ELI program, call 606-677-6000, email youth@centertech.com, or visit www.centeryouthprograms.com.

Established in 1996 through the vision of U.S. Congressman Harold “Hal” Rogers, (KY-05), and other leaders, The Center for Rural Development is a nonprofit organization fueled by a mission to provide leadership that stimulates innovative and sustainable economic development solutions and a better way of life in Southern and Eastern Kentucky. In its 45-county primary service region, The Center provides innovative programs in leadership, public safety, technology, and arts and culture. The Center is committed to constantly expanding its capabilities in order to deliver a range of key services throughout Kentucky and the nation.
