Community Economic Development (CED) Peace Corps Volunteers in the Dominican Republic assist existing and future entrepreneurs to build the business capacity that allows them to sustain their businesses and increase their involvement in local economies. Volunteers and project partners have identified that youth often play a substantial role in contributing to the economic welfare of their families; however, many youth lack the basic skills to maintain a successful business and the access to the necessary financial capital.

PCPP funds will help to refurbish and renovate a sports hall for local youth. The hall consists of a volleyball net and will be used for basketball and indoor activities during the winter. Funding will help to provide uniforms, basketball hoops, and balls for youth teams similar to PAL programs in the United States. Through friendly competition between local teams, the project aims to engender camaraderie, team work, and more positive recreational activities for disadvantaged Bulgarian youth. The community has contributed the facility to be renovated through PCPP funds and will provide funds for utilities and a stipend for two local coaches.
  
CED Volunteers, with the assistance of Dominican university business students who volunteer as PLAN-trained facilitators, are currently coordinating the 4th annual "Build Your Dreams" youth initiative aimed at promoting socially responsible economic development in the Dominican Republic through youth entrepreneurship. The initiative consists of two central components:

The merits of the project are as follows: (1) positive recreational activities for young people seeking to use their free time more productively, (2) teaching values such as teamwork, dedication, and self-esteem, (3) an indoor facility that can be used during all seasons, particularly the winter, thereby encouraging youth to be active rather than remain indoors, and (4) serve as an example of how citizens, regardless of age, can collaborate for a common cause and work together.
 
 
A 14-week young entrepreneur summer course taught by CED volunteers and PLAN promoters, where participating youth will undertake a variety of activities such as conducting a feasibility study to identify a need for a particular product/service in a community, elaborating a cost and price analysis for their product/service, developing a marketing plan for their product/service, creating the necessary budget in order to start the business, and locating potential funding sources.
 
 
 
A 3-day entrepreneur conference and business plan competition in Santo Domingo from October 16-18, 2009, where youth from across the country will participate in workshops addressing various business themes such as marketing, promotion, and problem-solving skills, and will compete for seed money to fund their business ideas.
