The Junior Entrepreneur Scheme teaches enterprise and entrepreneurship skills to children and youth. Starting from grade seven upwards (age 12+), participants are both empowered into thinking about career development and goal setting, and also taught technical business skills that give them a strong sense of commercial awareness.
The dual principles of empowerment and education are at the core of the JES, and also are core values of the educational projects that Zambian Gems supports.
Zambian Gems supports the growth and development of the Junior Entrepreneur Scheme by providing financial and advisory support to the initiative.
