PowerPlay Young Entrepreneurs is an educational program that helps students in grades 4 through 8 develop an entrepreneurial mindset. Students have fun gaining real-life career experience by exploring the world of business.
As they build their own independent business ventures, they set and achieve goals, acquire confidence and develop practical life skills. They put their plans into action at the Young Entrepreneur Show, a dynamic event where they interact with customers and earn money. By donating a portion of their profits to charity, they also discover the impact of giving.

This is the way kids need and want to learn. To apply the basic skills of math and business in a functional environment. I was over the moon about the life skills that they learned.
