Enjoy a unique camp for youth interested in owning a business someday. Every child proposes an idea and one is selected as the class business. Learn Love & Grow will invest a small amount of capital in the business and each child receives all materials needed to sell the product to family, friends, and neighbors. It’s not just a business plan, but a real business conceived from scratch, with real products and services, and real customers who pay for what is produced. New this summer, Charles Schwab has provided the opportunity for our Jr. Entrepreneurs to participate in their financial literacy program and we are excited to have representatives from Charles Schwab attend our last day of camp!
