Belgrade's Crazy Days on Saturday, Aug. 21, will feature young Belgrade entrepreneurs selling refreshments and providing information on services such as babysitting and lawn mowing.
These students have started their own businesses, after participating in the BizKids Young Entrepreneur Program, a partnership of the Belgrade Community Library, Junior Achievement of Montana and Sky Federal Credit Union.
BizKids uses the BizKids television program available through Montana PBS, delivering hands on activities taught by a local credit union volunteer. Junior Achievement of Montana is an economic education non-profit organization that works to promote financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and work readiness skills among school-age children across the state. JA provides resources in classrooms as well as extra-curricular programs after school and during the summer.
