Girls Inc. will hold business program Tuesday

NEWBURYPORT — Girls Inc. of the Seacoast Area, a program of the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center, is proud to implement Girls Inc. Exploring Entrepreneurial Experiences (E3), a program encouraging girls to explore business ownership as a possibility for their present and future.

The program is intended to introduce girls ages 11 to 13 to entrepreneurial concepts and business planning while challenging them to envision themselves as innovators. It also helps girls discover role models in women who are successful business owners.

Girls Inc. E3 will take place on Tuesday in the program room on the first floor at the Newburyport Public Library from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will include a local walking field trip to women-owned businesses: Cafe di Siena, Simply Sweet, Interlocks Salon and Day Spa, and Arthur S. Page Insurance Company.

Girls must stay for the entire workshop. The event is free, but space is limited. Registration is required. Breakfast and lunch are provided.

“This is a great program that provides girls with the encouragement and opportunity to investigate their own businesses. Participation of local entrepreneurs always gets the girls engaged and inspired,” program director Sabra Dow said.

Girls Inc. of the Seacoast Area serves Amesbury, Merrimac, Newbury, Newburyport, Rowley, Salisbury West Newbury, Georgetown, Groveland and Ipswich.

To register for E3 or for more information about Girls Inc. of the Seacoast area, contact Dow at 978-465-1268 or by email at sdow@girlsincseacoast.org.
