Amie Buhari, founder of the Hebe Foundation, helped organise Junior Apprentice along with local youth clubs. It was designed to teach 13-19 year-olds “business and leadership skills”. As well as presenting a board game idea to M & G Investments directors, the youngsters had to sell donuts, set up events for residential homes and double their money in a day by implementing a business idea.

Participant Monique Boreland, 13, a semi-finalist, praised the scheme: “It boosted my confidence and helped my social and leadership skills.”
