Thank you, Denver!  The Young Entrepreneurs Marketplace on Saturday, December 7 was a phenomenal success!  The youth businesses who sold their products and services were thrilled with the end results.  At Young Americans, we are always astounded by the support we receive from the community, and Saturday was no exception.
