Our Mission

Kids Taking Action

Build a Biz Kids, a local Non Profit Society, is dedicated to offering practical skills to our youth using Entrepreneurship as our medium. We are creating a community of support for parents & students alike.

To us, it’s not just about what our students do while in our programming, but what they take on, with their newfound confidence, afterwards. The impact of these practical lessons can be seen for years to come, both monetarily and in personal fulfillment & success.

Developing Children’s

Practical Skills

Entrepreneurship is a fun adventure, but hidden within each program are practical skills that will help students to see opportunity all around and give them the confidence to take action.

Here are just a few of the useful skills your child will take on:
– Problem solving through creative thinking
– Working with numbers in a practical way
– Confidently speaking to strangers & selling their product
– Taking “No” or other negative reactions as positive information
– Customer service & self awareness
– Taking ownership and committing to decisions.

Build a Biz Kids

A Non Profit Society

Build a Biz Kids is 100% a passion project for it’s founders & operators. The most common comment we hear is, “I wish we had a program like this when we were kids”, and we couldn’t agree more. 
BizKids Practical Education ASSN, or Build a Biz Kids, is focused on bringing practical skills to as many children and youth as possible. If in 20 years, our students can say, “I’m so glad I had a program like that when I was a kid”, then our mission has been accomplished.

Shaping Future Perspective

Watch Kids Launch Their Businesses!

Experiencing their potential through action, kids can see exactly what they are capable of. Confidence is built by testing their abilities and seeing results. With practice, what they don’t know today will become natural instinct later.
