ELLISVILLE - Entrepreneurs in Wayne County will now have the opportunity to realize their dreams of small business ownership with the help of Jones County Junior College’s, “Operation JumpStart.” A free introduction of the program, sponsored by First State Bank of Waynesboro will be held on Tuesday, September 15, at 9 a.m. at the JCJC Wayne County Center. At this meeting, JCJC Operation JumpStart instructor, Deborah Smith will discuss the six-week, nationally-recognized, highly successful training model to those who want to start or expand a small business. The Operation JumpStart: First Step curriculum teaches participants essential small business planning and preparation skills with practical hands-on training from experts in the field. 

“By offering hands-on training and business advice from our business sponsors and business leaders, participants can be more successful. They get to see how the process works instead of us telling them what they need to do to start a business,” said Deborah Smith, JCJC Operation JumpStart instructor.
The training program will be held on Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9 a.m. until noon, for six weeks beginning on Monday, September 28, 2015 through November 4. Classes will meet in Waynesboro, at JCJC’s Wayne County Center located at 103 Collins Street in Waynesboro.
With help from sponsorships from First State Bank in Waynesboro, the Operation JumpStart tuition is $250. Applications can be picked up at the JCJC Advanced Technology Center in Ellisville or from Daryll McDonald, the Director of the JCJC Wayne County Center in Waynesboro. Contact McDonald by calling 601-735-2228 or email at daryll.mcdonald@jcjc.edu.
