Enterprise Village

Enterprise Village
  • Enterprise Village is a self-contained economic education program that provides a hands-on learning experience for students. Students spend 6 weeks in their classroom studying economic education objectives that teach them about writing checks, using a debit card, keeping a checkbook register, applying for a job and working in a group. These educational objectives are put into action as the students spend one day at the village. The layout of Enterprise Village is similar to a shopping mall. During their business day, students work in one of the 20+ businesses, take 3 breaks, receive paychecks and have the opportunity to be consumers by making purchases in one of the business-sponsored storefronts. Without a doubt, this is considered by most students to be their best educational experience in elementary school.

  • The Enterprise Village program assists students by allowing them to:

    • Develop basic economic concepts
    • Understand relationships between businesses and consumers
    • Use quality concepts in business and consumer planning
    • Develop a basic understanding of checking and savings accounts
    • Understand a simple decision-making process
    • Work together to satisfy customer’s expectations
