JKHA Fifth Grade Entrepreneurs Host Marketplace

The young JKHA entrepreneurs from fifth grade have been working all year on the TREP$ Entrepreneurship Education program. The TREP$ program uses project-based learning to teach financial literacy and life skills to students as they build a business of their own creation. Throughout the course of this months-long enrichment program, students created their own original product, learned how to pitch a product, how to market a product, how to secure investors, measure revenue and expenses, design branding, how tzedaka factors into business practices and finally, sell their wares.

The students’ one-night-only TREP$ marketplace opened last week, marking the apex of the program, during which students officially launched their businesses, selling their individually-made products to real customers. From handmade jewelry, tie-dye socks and JKHA logoed tote bags to decorated water bottles, 3D printed toys and stress balls among a plethora of other items, products spanned a wide range and showed student’s creativity and ingenuity. JKHA was honored to have Livingston Mayor Shawn Klein open the program. The fifth grade entrepreneurs were excited to showcase their work to members of the school community and show how much they had learned.
