The Business Is Jammin’ program focuses on introducing youth (ages 8-15) to entrepreneurship as an alternate career choice, while stressing the importance of education and personal development, in a fun and energetic environment. These weeklong, fun-filled, interactive business camps take young people through the different stages of starting and running a business. During this summer camp, our Youth Coordinators will be delivering several entrepreneurship workshops to youth, exploring the characteristics of an entrepreneur, techniques for idea generation and engaging creative thinking exercises.
The activities are interactive and help to develop academic essential skills like math as well as learning about personal entrepreneurial traits. As the camp week comes to an end, the Youth run their own Business for a Day. This is a valuable learning experience that will foster the development of the attitudes, skills and characteristics needed in an entrepreneurial culture.
