On Saturday, March 2, between 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm, the first edition of the economic education and entrepreneurship program "Junior in Business" takes place, dedicated to children between 8 and 13 years old, in Eliana mall in Brasov!
"Business juniors" is the most innovative program for children in Romania that develops self-confidence, communication and entrepreneurial skills through games and practical sales of products created in teams.
In 2012 there were 11 editions in Bucharest, Bacau, Constanta and Iasi, where 220 children from 7 to 13 years old participated in total, and where the children made about 4200 lei "pocket money" and donated about 200 lei.
In Bucharest and Bacau the program is held monthly from January 2013.
The program brings children closer to what it means to be responsible for spending, getting their own income, but also understanding simple economic principles through fun games and activities.
"Business juniors" is built on two basic principles:
1. Personal development and communication skills - children are involved in games of presentation, creativity and teamwork.
2. Development of entrepreneurial skills and understanding of economic principles - after a few games of calculation or analysis, the children are divided into teams and agree on which products to sell. I receive a surprise budget from which I buy various materials to make my own products. After shopping, make a promotional poster and prepare their products. They have an hour to convince the customers and to sell their products made by them. The profit obtained is divided equally among the team members.
This year, the program will bring new challenges to children at each edition. Besides the punctual activities, at each meeting the teams have a new task, like a mysterious client who will train them in negotiations or they will take over a company with products in stock that they will have to sell.
The number of participants is 16 copies / edition.
The participation ticket is 70 lei / participant / edition. The ticket price includes: working materials, the budget for the creation of products and fair, snacks, diploma of participation, Guide of the parent. Throughout the project, all children wear personalized T-shirts with the "Junior in Business" logo.
The registration of children in the program is done at [email protected] or by phone 0746.042.033, until March 1, 12.00.
