Entrepreneurship for Kids
Virtual class hosted via zoom supported by Google Classroom
October 13 to November 17
Wednesdays (6 weeks)
5:30 PM-6:30 PM EST
Unicorn Children's Foundation is partnering with E Cubed Elementary Entrepreneur Education to offer young (ages 8-12 years old) entrepreneurs a nurturing environment where they will learn about the entrepreneurial process. Students will use the design thinking process to brainstorm a product or business idea and have the opportunity to participate in a final project which they will present virtually in December, at the Unicorn Children's Foundation’s Creative Workforce Solutions Conference. With adult collaboration and the skills learned in this course, students can choose to create their final project to present as a market pitch, Ecommerce store, or a business action startup plan.
During this entrepreneur adventure, students will discover their passion, purpose, and voice through fun exploration, interactive activities, and games. In addition, students will learn about finance through a virtual banking system that rewards foundational values and an entrepreneurial mindset. They will earn “Cube Cash” (virtual dollars) that will teach them about getting paid for a job, savings, philanthropy and expenses. Then they will decide how they choose to spend their money at E Cubed virtual auctions.
Materials needed for class: A notebook (or a journal made out of several pages of lined paper stapled together with construction paper or white print paper stapled to the front as a cover), a pencil, eraser, crayons or colored pencils, and colored markers.
**The value of this class is $300.00 per session but will be offered at a discounted rate, with support of available grants & donations.
