What is minipreneurs yyc?


Are you looking for a truly unique program that helps build life skills, fosters entrepreneurship and initiates financial literacy?  You've found it here.  MiniPreneurs YYC exposes kids aged 7 to 15 to entrepreneurship by walking them through the steps of creating their own businesses.  The program culminates in a Market Day where they sell their products to friends, family and the public.

After School – Oftentimes, our programs run outside of school hours as much of the content is not in the school curriculum.  You'll find us in community centers and other such spaces.

Private Groups – Do you know a group of Girl Guides, Scouts, kids of private group members such as EO, that want to be a part of the fun?  As long as we have a minimum of 8 interested kidpreneurs, we can start a group for you.  We've even held meetings in someone's home - how inviting is that?

Special Programs – Some schools have special programs built into their curriculums and have offered MiniPreneurs as a Club.  Perhaps your child's school can too.

Homeschool - Let us help you deliver financial literacy, risk taking, and entrepreneurship
