JUNIOR ENTREPRENEUR CLUB
The Junior Entrepreneur Club progresses students from idea to startup to selling over the duration of 12 months.
Students participate in a variety of business, finance, and entrepreneurship classes throughout the year. Within 6 to 12 months, our advanced entrepreneurs are out with their startups earning real money.
In 2022, Students in our Junior Entrepreneur club brought home close to $25,000 and donated close to $8,000 back to the 501c3 nonprofit – a portion of their donation went to providing weekly or bimonthly classes to trafficked girls at a local group home free of charge.
In 2023, youth will continue this tradition of giving a percentage of their sales to help underserved populations. They will help launch funding into the CAMIO fund, a fund that helps guarantee access to youth based on need and merit.
What is the cost of the Junior Entrepreneur Club?
We encourage every youth to gain practical business knowledge. Students enrolled in other youth programs at ‘Come and Make It!’ only pay $19 per month plus 30% of sales to be part of the Junior Entrepreneur Club. 20% of sales covers expenses to sell such as credit card fees, retail bags, mileage. 10% of sales is a tax-deductible donation to the CAMIO fund.
The cost for a student not enrolled in other programs at ‘Come and Make It!” is $60 per month plus 30% of sales with the same breakdown as above.
The CAMIO fund provides scholarships for Come and Make It!and it’s affiliated youth programs to underserved youth based on merit and need.
