It's small business week across the country and in Colorado. On Thursday, 9NEWS is celebrating entrepreneurs and encouraging young people to get their ideas out there early. 

Joe Saboe from Denver Public Schools stopped by 9NEWS with some advice for teens. Saboe says parents should help teens explore a field a passion when deciding an internship. 

He says DPS currently offers a program, Carrer Connect,  in which teens can "set the bar high" and job shadow for tech companies or even see what it is like to work in the medical field.
