Currently, entrepreneurship is being taught and encouraged to students at the high school and university levels, however, at such a late stage, we can’t expect the entrepreneurial spirit to realistically take root.
Teaching students about entrepreneurship impacts them in so many ways. Not only is our program helping them learn the basics of starting and running a business, it is also helping them develop critical thinking skills and build their self-conﬁdence.
The program is also designed for kids to increase their resilience, become more empathetic and develop a sense of optimism.
Another major aspect that we focus on is teaching students the importance of giving back to their community. These are all critical skills to learn which they will take on to adulthood, so no matter what career path they choose, they will grow up to become well-rounded individuals.
My goal is to instill the entrepreneurial spirit in these students. We want them to know that life is not about just getting a job, their future has options and entrepreneurship is one of them. Finally, and just as important, entrepreneurship and leadership are already within these children, all we are doing is bringing it out to help them shine.
