City Square is excited to host Kids Market Day on Saturday, January 13th from 1:00pm to 3:00pm! Come check it out & show your support for these amazing entrepreneurs!

Young Entrepreneur Learning Labs is an after-school enrichment program designed to engage children aged 7-15 in entrepreneurial thinking and foster their natural, enterprising spirit.

In the Young Entrepreneur Learning Labs entrepreneurship programs, KidPreneurs learn vital business skills while starting their own micro-businesses in a fun and experiential way. The program concludes with a Market Day, where kids sell their products to friends, family and the public.
