Kids Community Market on the Fleurieu Coast

The First Kids Community Market will be held Sunday 1st July, 10am to 1pm at the Yankalilla Visitor Information Centre. The idea behind the children's market is to encourage school age children to use their skills, creativity and imagination to set up a market stall, and through this process inspire them to learn the basics of business and finance.

The idea behind the children's market is to encourage school age children to use their skills, creativity and imagination to set up a market stall, and through  this process inspire them to learn the basics of business and finance. We would like the children to be exposed to a range of skills from marketing and promotion, to basic financial concept, e.g. how to calculate basic profit and loss and understanding interest rates.

We aim to engage as many children as possible in small workshops that will allow them to learn more about these practical skills. Our initial format is to have our first market on Sunday the 1st of July and then to hold our second market on the Sunday of week 9 in Term 3. During Term 3 on weeks 2,4,6,8 we are proposing a series of short hands on workshops to help the children with their stalls and to learn more about the finance and business basics.

There is an option for the children to borrow funds for their market stall from the Market Fund of course they will need to understand the repayment plan and small interest charges applicable to their loan.... We have had a huge amount of local business support and I have almost secured some sponsorship that could be as much as $800.

We are super excited about the many opportunities this can provide to our youth and welcome any feedback and ideas.
