About

We are looking for students willing to learn from community leaders what it takes to run your own business through workshop trainings, then actually work to start these businesses from the ground up right here in Sulphur!

SC3 has begun a youth empowerment program for students. "Rise Up" is funded by the State Farm Youth Advisory Board Grant. The program includes six career modules each of which was formed to address a particular need in our community. In each module participants will engage in character development, vocational education and training, entrepreneurial income, service for the community, and advocacy towards systemic change. Participants will leave the program with a resume, letters of recommendation, academic knowledge, vocational skills, mentor relationships, a network of contacts in their particular field, access to a variety of certifications, opportunities for income, and a venue to make a long term difference.


In each of these modules we will be starting youth built community businesses. Module 1: Coffee Shop - Learn Business, Finance, & Job Readiness Module 2: Bike Repair Shop - Mechanics & Metal Work Module 3: Wood Shop/ Home Building - Drafting & Construction Module 4: Food Truck - Culinary, Hospitality, & Nutrition Module 5: Print Shop - Public Relations, Advertising, & Marketing Module 6: Babysitting Service - Childhood Health & Education We are only accepting 12 students in each module. The module trainings have already begun; contact us if you are interested in joining today!
