Bizzy Teens: Ages 13-14 ( girls turning 13 with in 3 months of the start of camp will be permitted to enroll). Bizzy Teens will explore similar topics as below but content will be more in depth and challenging, specific to their age group. They will engage in more problem-solving scenarios and more emphasis will be put on the online marketing of their ecommerce stores. They will have a guest speaker.
Bizzy Girls provides a well balanced program, with a very different feel then girls have had during home schooling over the last three months. Goals are to help girls develop and launch a business, create their own product line, open an ecommerce business, develop self confidence and grow through social interactions. Social emotional learning includes creating a growth mind set, setting goals, decision making, collaborative activities and overcoming fears, awareness of negative self-talk. For full day and the teen program a guest speaker will be a young female entrepreneur telling her story, including overcoming challenges and answering questions.
Day One Partial Example
Girls will get an overview of what the agenda is each day and write their goals in a journal.
1.Product development and creation: Student will have chosen a product and have supplies before the start of camp. Girls will discuss themes related to branding and create vision boards for their product development. This creative time is simultaneous where girls will be creatively working but not required to be looking at their screens. They can talk to each other and the teacher. Girls will share their products/ vision boards and get feedback from other girls. 2.Discussion on hard parts of being an entrepreneur. What they learned if they are returning students. Give them a business problem, let them write how they could solve that problem and have them share.
Homework assignment will be to ask an entrepreneur they know, ask what problem they had and how they solved it. This is part of creating a growth mind set, showing that we have to look at all situations as learning opportunities and problem solve- not judge ourselves as failing.
3.Snack break 4.Creative time to work on products.

Parents will have to register stores. Girls can work on their stores when they are off their zoom screens, but we will be using screen share and showing them exactly how to open the store. They will be able to do this themselves.
Teachers are all female, licensed by their state and have been teaching virtually. A group of educators, all with a Master’s Degree in Education and have been teaching virtually, were instrumental in creating the updated curriculum and making sure it incorporated movement, socializing and creativity along with business and life skills. We want girls to have fun while learning.
