Project Great Potential (PGP) is an entrepreneurship program that helps young adult men between the ages of 18-25 tap their entrepreneurial potential and develop personal and professional skillsets. Many young adult men struggle to find their direction in life and to access the resources they need to achieve their dreams. Project Great Potential harnesses the potential and ambition of these young men and helps them pursue a vision for success by equipping them with the relationships and resources necessary to succeed in the business world. PGP offers rigorous workshops, individualized coaching, and a professional and nurturing environment. Project Great Potential participants gain marketable skills in the following areas: research, written and verbal communication, professionalism, networking; finance, and time management. By the end of the program, PGP participants have developed a personal portfolio, drafted a business plan, or written a career plan to obtain a job with quality living wages.

PGP will be hosting an upcoming workshop from 10am-5pm on June 13th, at The Enterprise Center. Interested young men should call (215)895-4012 or complete an online application at to schedule an intake interview for an upcoming workshop or register on-site at 9am prior to the workshop.
