SAVE, the Social Alliance for a Vibrant Economy, will be offering a series of three Kids Biz Club this fall. These 6 week long courses will meet two hours per week and are geared to students, age ten to sixteen.

If you have a student who would like to learn about how they fit into the community, develop fundamental skills needed to start a small business and to build a basic business web page; this is a great opportunity for them to do just that. The goal of Kids Biz Club is to inspire students to start their own small business and teach them how to plan a business and build their own business website. The courses include a 100-page course notebook and USB Drive to store your project.

One of our primary missions is to help train teachers and parents how to act as mentors for the next generation. We are therefore looking for parents, teachers and community members interested in mentoring the next generation of innovators. No experience necessary. We will provide you with all the training you need.


The benefits of becoming a mentor is that you will not only be helping the next generation but you will also have a chance to learn about the latest ideas in starting a new business and building a business website. After all, the best way to really learn something is to try to explain it to someone else!

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, send us an email with your contact information to info (at) savenw (dot) org. We promise you will have a great time and learn a lot. We look forward to hearing from you!
