The Youth Service recently gave 10 youth groups £100 each to invest in a business project. The youth groups had to come up with an idea for a commodity that could be sold to the public. Any profits made were to be kept to reinvest in the youth club activities.
The Isabella Youth Club made Shamballa bracelets which they sold to user groups in the community centre, at ASDA and at the Town Team’s Blyth Victorian Market.
The Isabella Youth Club made a profit of £540 on the initial investment of £100.
The four youth groups that make the most profit will go forward to the Dragon Den stage where they have to have to make a presentation to a panel of judges made up of executives from the Youth Service. The winner receives an extra £50 for their youth club
