You might think we’re biased, and you would be right. We are passionate, not only about teaching children entrepreneurship, but also about the importance of entrepreneurship in the lives of our children.
Commercial entrepreneurship frees our children’s innate innovative and creative potential and empowers our children to play a significant role in the financial success of their families and communities. Picture a community where the children are not stymied before they even have a chance, but, rather, become an integral, contributing part of building family and community financial viability.
Social entrepreneurship presents a starting point and outlet for unleashing our children’s compassion, generosity of spirit, innovation, creativity and ethical thinking. Social entrepreneurship not only allows our children to begin to understand the harsher realities of life, but empowers them by instilling the belief that they too can take an active part in solving some of the more vexing social problems that plague our neighborhoods and that may also plague the greater global community.
Faced with the empowering realities of entrepreneurship and the concomitant skills nurtured through the teaching of entrepreneurship: innovation; interaction and collaboration; inspiration; ideation and problem solving; and initiative, we believe that an entrepreneurship education is vital to our children, our neighborhoods, our country and our world. That is the essence of our case for teaching entrepreneurship in every elementary school across our nation. And yet, entrepreneurship is not routinely taught, and even less so, in our elementary schools.
Teachers simply have too much to teach, with little, if any, precious class time to squeeze in even a tad of entrepreneurial education. We extol our teachers to be creative. Build into your language arts, geography, mathematics and social studies lesson plans the elements of an entrepreneurial education. If you are interested, contact us. We can help.
