MONTVILLE, NJ – This weekend, Cedar Hill and Valley View Elementary Schools will be transformed into vibrant markets where over 100 elementary school students will sell their wares at their TREP$ Marketplace.
TREP$, short for entrepreneurs, is an education program that teaches about entrepreneurship and is designed to serve as an inspiration for young people to think creatively and put their ideas into action by creating their very own business. Through a series of after school workshops the students learn how to operate their own business. The program covers topics like product development, marketing, sales, customer service and handling money. The marketplace is the culmination of the program.
The community is welcome and encouraged to attend the TREP$ Marketplace this weekend to support these young business entrepreneurs. It’s a great place to do some shopping for oneself or others while supporting and celebrating the accomplishments of these proud, young entrepreneurs. TREP$ Marketplace is a CASH ONLY establishment and admission is free.
