NURTURING 21ST CENTURY YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS
This year the D.M. Therrell High School Alumni Association, Inc. has changed the scholarships from providing money for books to training 21st Century Young Entrepreneurs. The scholarships are $2,400+ part-time internships for six to 12 months working at least 20 hours per month with Therrell High School Alumni business owners, as well as the Therrell High School Alumni Association.

The hourly pay for these internships will be $8-$10 under the program depending on the position. A scholarship recipient can work up to 30 hours per month while in school/training. Applicants do not have to attend school in metro-Atlanta to receive a scholarship as some positions can be performed remotely with internet access, a telephone and a quiet space. Positions can include virtual assistant, social media apprentice, tech support apprentice, marketing apprentice and more.

All scholarships include membership in the Therrell High School Alumni Association - www.therrellhighalumni.com.

We will be awarding at least three scholarships. At the end of the six or 12 months, the most feasible business idea(s) will be turned into a fully-functional online corporation registered with the State of Georgia. The goal is for each business to become a learning experience and profit center for recipients. These businesses will be the beginning of a legacy of entrepreneurs from Therrell High School empowered and trained by Therrell High School Alumni business owners and supporters.

Camrose Creative Services, Inc. will oversee the program in partnership with the Therrell High School Alumni Association, Inc. Interships begin August 2017.
