Young Americans Center for Financial Education has held a Marketplace for youth business owners for decades. It’s a place where young people can sell their hand-crafted products to the Denver metro area community, gaining hands-on experience in sales, customer service, and business ownership.
When COVID-19 cancelled the in-person event this spring, Young Americans Center utilized technology to provide an online sales environment for youth. More than 33 young people, ages 6-21, signed up to offer their products at the first-ever YouthBiz Online Marketplace, hosted on the Sharetribe platform.
