These Teens Mean Busine$$ Innovation Studio

A business product design program for grades 9th-12th graders

During this entrepreneurship and product design program, teens learn and apply the Design Thinking process to create “businesses-in-boxes,” called imPACTful Creations. These boxes are designed for children ages 8-14 and contain materials and directions for customers (aspiring “kidpreneurs”) to create and launch their own business for social good.
  • Brainstorm a product idea for this year’s imPACTful Creations kits.
  • Earn $12/hour over the summer teaching 8-14 year olds how to use their imPACTful Creations PLUS a $125 after learning how to budget your earnings!
  • Strengthen critical thinking, problem-solving, and leadership skills.
  • Earn one Madison Metropolitan School District high school credit.
  • Improve your confidence and self-responsibility.
  • Meet new friends and have fun.
