what you get

Here’s what entrepreneurship teaches you!

Entrepreneurship Teaches Valuable Life Skills

Entrepreneurship teaches you about planning, financial responsibility, supply and demand, the importance of relationships, and more.


It improves academic performance, school attendance, interpersonal skills, job readiness, problem solving skills, and decision-making abilities.


Entrepreneurship is a Safe Place to Experiment

Entrepreneurship provides the perfect arena to experiment with career paths, business ideas, and self-identities. 


Teen entrepreneurship is the mature equivalent of playing dress-up.

You can try on a lot of different options with little risk.



Entrepreneurship is a Career Path and not just a Hobby

Entrepreneurship not just an alternative to traditional employment if times get tough but can be a primary career objective in place of higher education or after college.


This program gives you the opportunity to explore that path while still in school.
