The KidzEnterprise 'Mini Market'
Trade and Enterprise Stalls: 3.00pm - 4.00pm
Literacy, Numeracy and a range of key competencies fill the current curriculum in schools, with little time available to really delve deep into the world of Financial Literacy also.
Raising financially confident kids is something left to us as parents, without a lesson plan to guide us. It's fascinating...
The scope FreshAz Education has, gives us the luxury of being able to run our own bent on Youth Enterprise programmes. Kids enrolling with us, learn to run small product and service based enterprises, mini markets and fundraising ventures. The KidzConference opens its doors to more of them... You're welcome to set up a stall!
Background / Mission
Most of us were brought up with a view that we'd get a job one day...
Few of us were ever given scope to think that running our own business, could be an alternative. No matter how small...
To ultimately see kids adopt the five key angles of money management: earn, save, spend, gift and invest, they need to start with some immersion, a passion, a plan, an opportunity or incentive and some support.
What they handle enroute, opens minds, doors and a savvier kid - long term. When starting 'em young, we get to teach them financial literacy in ways where we can start small and let them learn first hand.
Running a stall enables kids to think of others - what might some like? They take a lead - step out and interact, explain, exercise their maths and discernment skills, making decisions at every step...
Public Trade Stalls
Adults: if you have a target market that includes children, parents or grandparents in particular, feel free to set up a promotional, services or sales area of your own with us - at the KidzConference Mini Market.
The added reality, is that Public Trade Stalls provide an example to the kids as they consider how they run one of their own.
Noel Leemings have had a space; the Operation Christmas Child charity has an annual one, as does our KidzConference administrator, with a craft focus. Sports Clubs, Scouting groups, Scrap-booking sales etc - all qualify.
Stalls by adults: $25.00 per space
