TREP$ (Grade 4 only)

  • TREP$ in green with a yellow light bulb "TREP$," short for enTREPreneurS, teaches kids what they need to know to launch their own businesses, and then hosts a TREP$ Marketplace, where the kids actually sell their products cash and carry to their friends, family, and community. Through this program, tens of thousands of young people have had their first taste of small business management and have become empowered with entrepreneurial mindsets.

    Students love TREP$ because in this program, they are given the opportunity to be independent and actually start a business! Parents love TREP$ because this program encourages professional behavior and reinforces the same positive characteristics we all work to instill in our children. TREP$ is a real situation that rewards focus, determination, teamwork, creativity, communication skills, and good old-fashioned hard work.

    Watch the TREP$ Kick-Off Video to see real kids who have started businesses with TREP$, and actual footage from actual Marketplaces.
