The 2020 Merritt Youth Entrepreneur Program turned out to be one of the last major Community Futures Nicola Valley endeavours of 2020 before the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the first wave of lockdowns and restrictions in March of that year. 


Initially it was assumed that the 2021 Merritt Youth Entrepreneur Program may be forced to be cancelled; but CFNV staff and Board are passionate about bringing projects like this to local schools and helping to inspire entrepreneurial youth in the community. Currently this program does not have any dates scheduled and isn't confirmed to return for 2021, but the CFNV team is hard at work assessing remote access and digital workshop options to keep MYEP going strong in 2021.


This page will continue to be updated with any new information as it develops, but if you would like to speak with CFNV staff directly about the project, please contact us at 250.378.3923 or via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We thank you for your continued support and interest in the Merritt Youth Entrepreneur Program!
