At Gymboree Play & Music Thousand Oaks, we are always looking for ways to help children beyond the four walls of Gymboree. Helping children grow is our passion! After our little ones have grown through their first five years at Gymboree, we hope that they keep reaching for the stars. This is the reason that we’ve decided to become platinum sponsors and donate to local group “Calabasas Mommy” for them to put on their much anticipated “Kid Entrepreneur Day”! This kid entrepreneur program helps kids learn to be entrepreneurs, empowers children and encourages them to chase their dreams.
Kid Entrepreneur Day is scheduled for Saturday April 25th, 2020. This event is to be supported solely through donation and community efforts and will be FREE to all children who wish to participate.
From Calabasas Mommy on how the program will work and how funding will be applied:
Kids from all over our local communities will register with us for FREE online to participate as a Kid Entrepreneur to feature their business on April 25, where they will learn about creating a business, development, profit and loss, and encourage kids who have an entrepreneurial mindset. We're empowering kids with an assigned "Kid Entrepreneur Day", where they will host their own pop-ups around the community. There is not a specified location for all kids, but they will be utilizing their own resources and relationship connections to execute their pop-up. By registering with us, they'll receive signage indicating that they're an official partner of Kid Entrepreneur Day and has received program guidelines. They'll receive advance tools for success and be invited to a celebration gathering where they can share their stories with fellow kid entrepreneurs.
Kids will partner with our business community to host their pop-up for the day, and will be supported by awareness. All revenues earned belong to the kid entrepreneur. This will be a parent assisted program as they learn about investing in their business, re-payment for expenses, operations, and ultimately, profits for growth!
Community involvement and supporting the children in our local communities and beyond is a huge passion of ours! We encourage other local businesses to join in, sponsor and donate. Let’s give our children the same drive and encouragement that led us to where we are as business owners today!
