For the second year in a row, dozens of Santa Fe kids in the City’s Summer Youth Program have spent their summer learning about business in the best way – by starting their own companies. Their work will be on display at the 2nd Annual BizKids Business Fair, this Friday at the Market Hall inside the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market Building.
Parents, friends, family, and the local business community are all invited to see the results of the second year of a program that teaches kids skills they can use through first-hand experience.
Mayor Alan Webber said, “For the second year in a row, our Summer Youth Program and Guadalupe Credit Union are partnering to help the next generation of Santa Feans develop important skills and have fun in the process. The business fair is an opportunity for all of us to support all of them and celebrate their summer of learning and hard work. I can’t wait.”
Young people in the program this year learned how to create a business from the ground up, including creating a business plan, budgeting, marketing, and more business basics skills.
“We encourage the community to come and support the 2nd Annual BizKids Business Fair,” said Winona Nava, President & CEO of Guadalupe Credit Union. “We are pleased to provide this valuable resource to the City of Santa Fe and our community, which will lay the groundwork for our youth to begin building a successful financial future and enhance their lives for years to come.”
The flyer for the event is below and attached. It will run from 9:30am-12:00pm at the Market Hall inside the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market Building.
