KIDS-N-BUSINESS TO START WEEKLY SESSIONS

Oct. 27, 2001 – Kids-N-Business will hold an orientation session for youngsters and parents on Tuesday to introduce a program of weekly after-school sessions that will begin Nov. 6 and run through May 8, 2002.
In the program, students ages 6 through 17 will study the basics of money management and/or advanced money management, how to start and operate a business, computer and Internet skills for business operations and e-commerce, and a foreign language. "Kids start and operate their own businesses" in the program, founder Jamila Harris said.
Harris said the sessions are open to both youngsters who took part in the Kids-N-Business program last summer and those who did not.
The school year sessions will be held one day a week from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Sts. Peter and Paul School. The orientation will be at the school on Tuesday from 5 to 6 p.m. Parents must attend with their children, Harris said.
Kids-N-Business is part of the Harris Institute for Youth Entrepreneurship, which supports after-school and summer programs to teach children business-oriented operations, technology and communications skills. For more information, call Harris at 714-2680.
