What is BIZ KID$?

In partnership with Community Futures Lakeland the Biz Kids program is offered to

youth ages 10-16 years. It is designed to promote youth entrepreneurism within our

community.

Timing - May/June to August

 

BizKids Program consists of:

  • Small business training through guided workshops

    • Are you an Entrepreneur?

    • Types of Business ownership

    • Naming your Business

    • Marketing your product or service

    • Advertising and pricing

    • Financial & Time Management

    • Running a small business

  • Business plan development

  • Customer service.

  • Mentor assistance from local community/business members

SEED CAPITAL

Following the completion of the workshops, up to $100 seed capital is provided to start their summer

business. Our participants in the Biz Kids program are paired up with a community/business member

whom they contact on a weekly basis by phone or email to update the progress of the business. Once

a month they meet and discuss future events in which the Biz Kids participant is attending and give

helpful advice to make this summer business a huge success. Many of our Biz Kid Businesses

remain active at farmer’s markets and fairs long after the program has finished.

MENTORSHIP

Our Mentorship component is a volunteer project to get the community involved with our youth whom

will be the future business owners in our neighborhood. It gives companies and employees a chance

to have great success and fulfillment while only providing about ten hours of their time.

WRAP-UP PARTY

At the end of the summer a wrap up celebration is planned to thank all of our sponsors, mentors,

parents and Biz Kid business owners. Awards, gifts and recognition are in abundance and a feast to

celebrate the Biz Kids achievements.
