"A special culmination ceremony is held upon completion”

The EECI Adult and Young Adult programs consists of five major components: (a) outreach, screening and enrollment (b) classroom training and seminars, (c) round table discussions and workshops (d) individualized consulting and mentoring, and (e) field trips. The curriculum is designed for 20 students per class. Each student has approximately 100 hours of service. The course is implemented over a nine-month period in a fully equipped Computer Center. The deliverables will include, but are not be limited to: The Executive Summary; the Start-up Mechanics; the Management Team; the Target Area; the Marketing Plan; the Financial Plan; and the Future. It is clear to EECI that Workshop and Writing Sessions are needed for the courses. In addition, the Young Adult Programs will include “Life Skill Courses.” Often, their business plan can be a road map for their daily lives and the business plan and the life plan will coincide. The introduction to Small Business and Entrepreneurship will give the young adults options to pursue in college for them, their parents and often their siblings. Clearly, we will identify entrepreneurs born to be in business.

The EECI Programs will also have continual Professional Development, Networking, and Mentoring activities on an on-going basis. These activities will include presentations by Successful Entrepreneurs, presentations on new and existing government and industry programs, and “Meet N Greet” sessions with other Entrepreneurs with like and/or similar interest.
