Over one thousand Primary school children in Kerry are expected to take part in a free programme that allows children to start their own classroom businesses.
The Junior Entrepreneur Programme promises to open young minds to the thrill of business, while developing their skills and confidence and is delivered to schools across country.
The programme is being supported by some of Ireland’s leading entrepreneurs and is sponsored nationally by Killorglin based Tweak.
This is the sixth year the Junior Entrepreneur Programme will operate in Kerry.
It was rolled out nationally two years ago proving hugely successful and signed up more than 10,500 primary school children in 400 schools last year.
1000 children in 43 schools took part in JEP in Kerry last year.
Jerry Kennelly CEO of Tweak and who co-founded the Junior Entrepreneur Programme says through the programme they want to show children just how much fun creating, working and succeeding in business can be.
