Volunteers

Our vision is to empower kids to impact the world for good through entrepreneurial endeavours.

To achieve our mission, Club Kidpreneur engages a large and dynamic network of real-world entrepreneurs and volunteers who provide kidpreneurs with a wealth of knowledge, experience, mentoring and future access to a thriving community of entrepreneurs.
Our mentors and volunteers consist of a wide range of individuals contributing varied skill sets to Club Kidpreneur’s programs and activities. These include: entrepreneurs, business people, teachers, educators, childcare professionals, parents, business coaches and community workers.
 

Here are just some of the ways you can contribute as a volunteer mentor:

  • Introduce the Club Kidpreneur program to your local school or even your old primary school
  • Facilitate the Ready-Set-Go program within a community group in your local area
  • Arrange stall space at local markets to allow kidpreneurs to sell their products
  • Attend local markets to mentor kidpreneurs as they sell their products
  • Mentor and support a school participating in the CK Challenge
  • Help to build and develop the Club Kidpreneneur mentor/volunteer community

Join Us!

If you are interested in sharing your skills, experience and passion with a new generation of budding kidpreneurs we’d love to hear from you. Register your details here to receive information about upcoming volunteer opportunities.
