Launched in the summer of 2018, YEP - the YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR PROGRAM - is designed for young entrepreneurs in grades 5 through 12 in local communities who have a new product they hope to launch. Successful applicants will be able to sell their items in the Harmony Brookside gift store or exhibit their work in the art gallery. Please note : we are unable to take applications from any projects involving food and drink.
We all like to believe that we can achieve our dreams but, at Harmony Brookside, we believe it takes more than dreaming to make things happen - it takes vision and drive, and being able to embrace failure! After all it’s often our failures that teach us the most and push us forward.
The aim of YEP is to create a place where young entrepreneurs can put their ideas into practice in a supportive environment, get constructive feedback and maybe start selling their product.
Young entrepreneurs interested in submitting an application should download the form below, complete and mail it to Harmony Brookside, PO Box 296, Brookside, NJ 07926
How do I apply? Download the Application Form (pdf) and complete with as much detail as possible. We request that all applications are handwritten in pen.
Where do I send the completed form? Mail it to YEP at Harmony Brookside, PO Box 296, Brookside, NJ 07926
Can I apply to sell my delicious homemade cookies? Yum, but unfortunately no. We are unable to take applications for any projects involving food and drink.
What happens next? Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted by email. We aim to respond within a week of receiving your application.
When will my product be sold in Harmony Brookside? There are no guarantees that your product will make it to our shelves, however, we'll provide feedback to all applicants. Sometimes products need further development or they may overlap with our current products. For example, we already stock scented soaps so if your product is in the same category it would need to be different from our current lines.
If you've read the Q&A section and still have questions, feel free to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with 'YEP' in the subject heading. We'll get back to you as quickly as possible!
