Turn your passion into a real life business this summer! The UNK Center for Entrepreneurship and Rural Development is offering a special entrepreneur class for youth ages 10-14. This day camp aims to equip you with the knowledge and skills to start your own business or improve an existing one!

Utilizing UNL’s 4-H Entrepreneurship Investigation (ESI) Camp Guide, you can capture your energy to create and run your own business. Participants will create their business and have the opportunity to sell their goods at a public venue. We have averaged 15 middle school aged campers each summer from 2012 to 2018. Their average final sale at the Expo as a group is $500-600 in 2 hours. Post program evaluation results show a 75% increase in youth entrepreneurial confidence, knowledge, and skills.

Aliese Hoffman, Coordinator of Experiential Student Entrepreneurship Education & Administrative Specialist at the Center for Entrepreneurship, is excited to teach this class and work with Kearney youth!
