After-School Clubs

Our after-school clubs are popular with schools, parents and students because they are unique, educational and fun! These programs provide true enrichment and are typically structured around the following grade clusters: K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12. Program themes include entrepreneurship, personal finance, the stock market, leadership and more!

My First Hot Cocoa Stand (K-3rd)

Come learn how to make yummy hot cocoa and how to earn money selling it! A hot cocoa stand is a great way to introduce our youngest entrepreneurs to the world of business and is fun! This program empowers kids with an entrepreneurial mindset for their “business,” drawing from such disciplines as marketing, finance and strategy, in a supportive environment fostering team work. From designing marketing flyers to estimating profits to experimenting with recipes, students have fun while developing business savvy!

Stock Market Club (3rd-8th)

Start investing in the stock market at a young age and make your money grow! Pick your own $10,000 portfolio with stocks like Apple, Google or Amazon using a cool stock-trading simulation. This hands-on experience empowers students with the tools and mindset to face future investment decisions with confidence and "buy low, sell high.” A solid foundation for successful future investors!

Entrepreneurs Club (3rd-8th)

If you like “Shark Tank,” this club is for you! Students select a “business idea,” learn to develop a business plan and make a “pitch” presentation on the last day.

Students also role-play as CEOs for leading companies (Apple, Under Armour, Amazon, Tesla, Coke) and work in groups to make strategic recommendations to address real business issues. Students enhance their problem-solving skills, develop business savvy and cultivate a strategic mindset as future leaders.
