JUNIOR PRENEUR: Pursuit in Entrepreneurship for Young Minds

Have you heard of the OFW Reintegration Program where the government provides grants to OFWs to enable them to start their own businesses here in the country so there would be no need for them to work abroad? How about the One-Town One-Product (OTOP) Program which provides assistance to small and medium enterprises? These are just a couple of government programs geared towards promoting entrepreneurship to improve living standards and to ignite economic growth in the country.

Entrepreneurs are of significant economic value to our country and not only contribute to economic growth but also provide employment opportunities to many others. Its role in creating a strong economy is why entrepreneurship is being greatly promoted now.

Stir the entrepreneurial spirit in your children by teaching them how to earn money in their own little ways. Selling homemade cookies or repacked candies may be a good start for those still in grade school. Expose them also to activities where they can learn and be trained to be excellent businessmen. Who knows where this opportunity could lead to? This may be the start of their journey into becoming a very successful entrepreneur in the future. If they do, you must remember to tell them to get in touch with a marketing website that can help them to build their own site as well as helping their business to continue to grow with the use of SEO and social media (to name a few). And all of this can start by taking part in a Government program.

One such event is the JUNIOR PRENEUR where kids can be entrepreneurs even for just a day. This exercise in entrepreneurship for young minds provides an early training, much like a practicum, for young children to hone the skills they have learned in school. This bazaar will also be a good venue for teaching children the value of hard work.

If your child has already shown business acumen this early, support him and get him his own booth at the Junior Preneur. Let your child come up with the concept or unique theme for his own 2x3m booth. Be there at the People’s Village Tiendesitas on November 10, 2012 from 12:00-8:00pm and watch him make some profit. He may even win one of these special awards: Most Visited booth, Best in Booth design, Most unique concept and Highest sales booth.

Join Junior Preneur and let your child learn how to: earn, save, and donate to charity!
