Little Bosses Boot Camp!
for children aged 4- 9 years old
Little Bosses Boot Camp aims to introduce concepts on entrepreneurship, running a business, managing money, financial literacy, budgeting, saving money, and socio-emotional related topics like bullying and empathy for others.
The camp covers fundamentals of being a “boss” and what an individual have to consider when running a business, from idea and business plan conceptualization, budgeting, staffing issues, to commercialisation of a product or service or setting up a shop. However, the ideas and concepts would be presented and explained in layman terms to the students.
During this camp, participants will:
- Have an opportunity to ‘run’ their own business so they can think through the workflow processes involved in setting up a business.
- Learn the value of money and how to make decisions related to monetary aspects like budgeting, profit and loss, balance sheets, salary payment, funds allocation for their proposed business, which requires them to do basic addition and subtraction as well as presenting information using tables. They will also practice handling “money” while running their “business”. This further hones their mathematical skills.
- Learn the importance of saving money, saving for a rainy rain and having emergency cash on hand.
- Will also develop a prototype of their proposed business ideas or mock setup of the proposed services.
- Be introduced to and develop project management and problem-solving skills, which are important life skills.
- Be trained in their presentation and public speaking skills as they will be required to present their business plan and prototype to the class on the last day of the camp.
- Learn how to work alongside others to run their proposed business ideas- a small restaurant, a retail shop or a supermarket.
- Learn skills related to socio-emotional aspects like handling rude and unreasonable customers (bullies), or having empathy for staff with special needs and how they can include these staff in a work environment.
- Have a Q&A session with a “real” entrepreneur, where the children get to ask questions about running a business.
- The topics covered during the sessions like budgeting, saving money, bullying and empathy will be further explored in a school setting to help children to apply what they have learnt into their real school environment.
