How did the idea of Entrepreneurship for Kids™ Program come up?
The idea of developing a program for students on entrepreneurship stemmed from identification of the need to teach students within the school the entrepreneurial skills, which are important and meaningful to succeed in life.
The acquisition of these skills, strengthens and encourages success.
As an entrepreneur and a mom of 4 kids, Galit understands that entrepreneurship is one of the most important growth engines of the economy in each country, and of the personal development of each of our children.
The programme Entrepreneurship for Kids curates years of knowledge and experience in management and entrepreneurship and has been adapted for young students at the school.
Kids, who can see the entrepreneurial model at home, are more likely to develop an entrepreneurial mindset as adults, but most kids don't have this model at home to emulate and study from.
Galit believes that entrepreneurial competencies represent 21st-century skills. Learning these essential skills empowers and encourages success.
The program was first implemented in the elementary school of Galit's son, and it was a big success. Then another school heard about the program, they invited Galit to teach their students entrepreneurship studies, and again it was a big success. (Read the recommendations)
At this point, Galit decided that the program was of definite benefit to the students. It was so effective that I rewrote the program in such a way that teachers are able to take the lesson plans and implement the entrepreneurship lessons by themselves, and with her guidance and assistance when is needed.
The program has been taught in Israel since 2009, and since then more and more schools understand the importance of acquiring entrepreneurial skills, and are asking to implement the program.
Sometimes it's the parents that heard about the program and offer it to the principals and sometimes it's the principals who want to help their students to succeed in real life.
Galit always makes sure that the program's contents are relevant and actual, so the students and the teachers find the entrepreneurship studies interesting and fun to learn.
