Why Entrepreneurship for Kids?

Startup School Bus is a kid’s first trip into entrepreneurship. We are taking summer camp to an entirely new destination this season by giving our young entrepreneurs the vehicles they need to succeed. They’ll learn from experienced teen and grown-up entrepreneurs in a fun environment rich with hands-on learning activities and even a building project they can call their own. They will not only be given the keys to start their journey, but will be fueled by our seasoned entrepreneurs’ expertise and inspiration to keep going and continue innovating to reach their destinations to become the earliest leaders of tomorrow. We recruit risk takers between the ages of 8-12yrs old. This year's bus stop was in Pleasant Grove, Utah and was a huge success, with more camps to come!

Stop

By 2020, more than 40 percent of the American workforce, or 60 million people, will be freelancers, contractors and temp workers, according to a study conducted by software company Intuit. Regardless of what your kids grow up to do, they'll need an entrepreneurial skill set in order to do it well and we're here to guide them.

Not so Fast!

The preference for entrepreneurship among students with ADHD-like behavior is the tendency to search for, and engage in, stimulating activities to compensate for their level of boredom. We want to help train their minds and teach them to use their behaviors to their advantage at their young age, specifically because of their willingness to take risks just like entrepreneurs do.

Go

Harvard Graduate School & the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship found that, “Youth who are taught about entrepreneurship show a positive change in attitude and strong success orientation, and are more likely to be focused on academic and professional achievements, occupational aspirations and leadership.”
