Youth Entrepreneurship Success Program

Each summer the Loan Fund runs a fun, interactive learning program with youth in the community to build skills through entrepreneurship. Using an experiential learning approach, kids play games to increase their knowledge of business, social enterprise and entrepreneurship. We have fun developing their own ideas together into a product or service.


We believe that the earlier a child is exposed to entrepreneurial concepts like focus, grit and self confidence, the more they use them in everyday life.
