How Homeschoolers Benefit from Entrepreneurship

P. David  Hall
Homeschoolers benefit when including entrepreneurial education into their curriculum. The homeschool wave is growing exponentially and will continue. Adding to the curriculum helps to prepare our future generation to meet the ever-changing growth and needs of this country.

Why not jump start students on the road to success by including programs that will prepare them to take charge of their destiny. With college debt skyrocketing, and the cost of a four-year degree increasing yearly, the young find themselves having to pay large amounts of debt even before they began to move on with their careers. According to Money, “students are graduating with tens of thousands of dollars of debt. Student loans have surpassed medical debt as the #1 credit issue people have today.” Entreprenuer education enhances and prepares them to meet students desired goals.

A few of the benefits for the students receiving entrepreneurial education are:
• Leadership Development Based on Strong Values
• Developing Leaders that Meet Current Population Needs
• Understanding the Value of Money & Creating A Secure Future
• Entrepreneurial Foundations that Lead to the Creation of Wealth and Security
• Learning How to Start a Business Successfully
• Personal and Financial Goal Setting
• An Understanding of How to Thrive, Not Just Survive in an Ever-changing Global Economy

These are just a few of the benefits when adding entrepreneurial education to a homeschool curriculum. Young minds are easily influenced and their ability to grasp concepts is tremendous, so why not teach them basic principles that will last them a lifetime giving them a head start on life.

Motivation Train: Creating self-governed scholars

Nicholeen  Peck
By the time a youth reaches middle school and high school age they are ready to learn how to govern their studies, motivate themselves, and track their progress academically, spiritually, and socially. After years of teaching homeschool classes for youth I’ve found that teaching them how to self-govern their school days is by far the most important scholarly skill they can learn. It is also the hardest. This class will talk about how to set up an environment where scholars are motivated to self-govern themselves.

From Homeschool To College

Nicole  Yacura
It’s a pretty common misconception that homeschoolers can’t get into college. In fact, parents fear homeschooling their child for that very reason. To settle the debate, I want to talk about my experience from being homeschooled to going to college. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows all the time, but nothing is. If I hadn’t been homeschooled, I don’t think I would have been as successful in college as I am now. In my presentation, I will be addressing the homeschool to college transition, its positives and negatives, and a few tips. I hope that by sharing my story, I will break the stigma behind homeschoolers going to college.
