    About the Course


    Teen Entrepreneurs is an empowering and comprehensive course designed to teach teens and high school students the essential aspects of launching a business, while also instilling the principles of social responsibility.

    Throughout this dynamic course, students will dive deep into the world of entrepreneurship. They will explore key concepts such as identifying market opportunities, developing a unique value proposition, creating a compelling brand, and building a strong customer base. We will guide them through real-world examples and engaging exercises, providing them with a hands-on learning experience.

    We also focus on the social impact of entrepreneurship. As part of the course, students will have the opportunity to connect with an international organization dedicated to a cause that is close to their heart. Together, they will collaborate and raise funds to support this cause, contributing to a greater purpose and leaving a lasting impact. We have previously partnered with Doctors without Borders, Musicians without Borders, Caritas, UNICEF, UNHCR and many more.

    Be better than the best

    As students advance through the grades of ExplorerHop financial education courses, they develop industry level skills and strategies. In Level 5 of the Camp Millionaire series, students are taught at a 3rd-year university level. In Level 8 they utilize concepts that are taught at a Masters level.

    When a student completes an entire ExplorerHop course series, they are equipped with the knowledge of a strong industry professional.

    Make a difference to your family

    ExplorerHop students learn how to plan for their future. Early financial literacy empowers children to understand and challenge how the world works. When your child understands the value of money, they can begin actualizing practical ways to grow it.

    Many of our courses offer the choice to purchase a supplementary app. The app is an engaging online learning module designed for your child. Each stage of the module offers exclusive content and interactive games that will help your child progress through the course. With the app your child will have access to these resources at all times, allowing for additional learning and support between classes. The app is offered through Canvas, and the student will be set up after starting the course.

    If you want your child to squeeze the most out of this experience, the app is a must-have!
