Costs and Logistics

Dear Parent

Thank you so much for your interest in the YE programme. Given to what extent the world of work has changed and the subsequent breakdown of the educational system, there has never been a more important time than now to teach entrepreneurship and financial literacy to our children. Yes, through your child’s involvement with Young Entrepreneurs he or she will gain invaluable business-, life- and financial literacy skills from the experience of starting their own micro-enterprise, and more importantly we will create awareness of entrepreneurship as a very attractive career choice. Cultivating entrepreneurship in the young is vital, as chidren are born imaginative, energetic, and willing to take risks, but without entrepreneurial education, the enterprising spirit of children dramatically declines over time and is almost non-existent by the time they graduate from high school.

Why the separate focus on financial literacy?

Not everybody’s going to be an entrepreneur, but everybody should be financially literate. Financial literacy is a base requirement like spelling or reading that everybody should acquire at any early age. When kids are taught the specific lessons of money management, they can not only apply their skills towards building a business for themselves, but they can also apply the skills they have learned to their personal lives. The financial habits you develop when you are young are going to go with you into your adulthood. Most importantly, you can’t be an entrepreneur unless you’re financially literate.

We are excited to embark on this journey with your child. This is THE BEST investment you can make in your child’s future!
