Young Star Entrepreneurs

Calling all future C.E.O.'s!

In the Young Star Entrepreneurs After School program, students will learn just what it takes to make their creative ideas a reality. Students will develop their very own products or services, create business & marketing plans and present their final business plans to a panel of investors. While these businesses ventures will not actually  be funded, this program offers students the ability to explore their own creativity while learning valuable skills.

Exploring Creativity

Education in Action facilitators head out to schools once a week to show students the steps they would need to take to turn their ideas into business ventures. Students will work either individually or in teams to come up with an original product or service. In this initial stage of the program, students will:

  • Participate in  brainstorming sessions to generate ideas for a new business
  • Create products that the business will offer
  • Design logos, slogans and create a name for their business and products

Developing their Business

Now it's time for students to develop their businesses plans. Students use hands-on techniques to develop:

  • Budgets
  • Marketing
  • Staffing
  • Location

Presenting their Plans

Students complete the program by developing presentions and presenting them to a panel of professionals. This panel will then determine whose plan will be 'funded'!
