PowerPlay Young Entrepreneurs
School Edition

Grades 4 to 8 students have fun gaining real-life career experience as they explore the world of business. They set and achieve goals, acquire confidence and develop practical life skills as they build their own independent business ventures.

The young entrepreneurs map out their success with a realistic business plan. Through games and fun activities they learn how to design their own products, conduct market research, set prices and create marketing materials. The students then 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.
