Kid-Preneur Camps Open This Summer

[ 0 ] May. 17, 2013 | SBO Editor

Global Business Development Center presents two unique summer program solutions to build successful futures. From June 10 to August 16, children ages 9-14 can participate in the Kid-Preneur program, taking place at the Boynton Beach Women’s Club. In addition, budding entrepreneurs ages 16-21 will have the opportunity to thrive in the Cultural Youth Entrepreneurship and On-the-Job Training Program running June 17 to August 15 at locations in Delray Beach and West Palm Beach.

The Kid-Preneur Summer Camp, hosted by Ashley Place Development Community Center along with The Global Business Development Center, provides kids with entrepreneurial opportunities. They will be able to create their own cities, act out careers, and become familiar with the city through guest speakers and field trips.

“At Kid-Preneur Camp, we believe in the benefits of encouraging experiential learning that engages the whole child. Our campers learn by exploring, experiencing and addressing real-life situations. They learn to think, explore, and act. We include money games designed to teach financial lessons, guest speakers and field trips that show them a real city at work,” said Annette Gray, owner of Global Business Development Center, the nonprofit incubator for Ashley Place Community Development.

“We wanted to provide a wholesome, fun and creative summer camp alternative. The camp has an accessible location, excellent catered lunches and snacks, an award winning program that truly helps create community and civic minded youth. We are so pleased to provide parents and children alike with a great summer,” said Rose Wong, Executive Director of Ashley Place Community Development Center.

Meanwhile, for the third year forty up-and-coming entrepreneurs ages 17-21 will have the opportunity to thrive in the Cultural Youth Entrepreneurship and On-the-Job Training Program at no cost. They will learn how to start their own businesses, and at the same time receive real-world work experience and wages at local cultural institutions and businesses.

The Cultural Youth Entrepreneurship and On-the-Job Training Program are possible through grant funding from, Love for One Another Foundation administered by Cousins Law Firm.
