New: BizKids Club at the Library

The Orange County Library System announces the start of its new BizKids Clubs, a 10-week series of classes designed to introduce middle-school students to the world of business and entrepreneurship.

Students will work with instructors and mentors to create a business plan, design marketing materials, manage inventory and develop their business ideas. Participating children can also participate in a Mini BizKids Market, a one-day marketplace where kids can launch their innovative inventions, services and products.

Funding opportunities are available to participants who complete the fun, interactive program so they can continue to develop their ideas and pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.

BizKids Clubs are based on the library’s popular BizKids Camps, which are offered as part of the library’s annual Summer Reading Program. The new series makes interactive business programs accessible to even more children, all year long.

BizKids Clubs meet once per week for 10 weeks at multiple participating libraries. Some sessions are available on weekdays, others on weekends. The first BizKids Clubs of the year (for January and February) have already been filled. Classes for new sign-ups are now available beginning in March. Apply today! NOTE: The application is really just a verification that parents understand that they are signing their child up for 10 weeks of classes and that they are committing to the entire session so their kids get the full experience.

BizKids Clubs are funded in part thanks to a grant from Orange County, Florida.
