Citrus Saturday gives young people the chance to learn about entrepreneurship by running their own business with support from student business mentors and UCL Advances.
Want to help school kids learn how to run a business and boost their employability at the same time?
Each summer UCL Advances runs Citrus Saturday, a project to help local young people find out about running a business and experience creating their own start-up for a day, making and selling lemonade!
Citrus Saturday provides school-age children with a clear picture of what it’s like to start and run their own company. It’s a great chance to increase their employability, raise their aspirations and expand their future career horizons.
"I think any programme that teaches young people how to do business sets the stage for the rest of their lives. One of the biggest challenges we have in the UK is that kids learn how to be professionals, they learn skills and crafts and trades, they learn academic disciplines but what they don’t learn is how to wrap that up in entrepreneurship and empower themselves."
