We wholeheartedly believe that it takes a Village to raise a young leader. With your generosity and support, Loveworks programs have reached more students than any other time in our history. We are committed to helping students discover their potential and pursue their BIG dreams with programs that focus on building character, leadership development, and entrepreneurialism. Through mentorship and experiential learning, students are equipped to make positive life choices, empowered to solve problems, and explore career paths.
In June we held two impactful weeks of Leadership Camps and a successful EARLY Business Camp. Through your generosity, students had the opportunity to grew in their leadership, character, and entrepreneurial skills. This year our leadership camps focused on setting goals that will help build a foundation for a healthy and purposed filled life so they can pursue their BIG dreams. Our EARLY youth entrepreneurship camp provided students with a crash-course in becoming an entrepreneur by teaming up, making a product, building a budget, developing a brand and marketing collateral, and crafting an impressive pitch to share about it all. Throughout the camps students had the chance to hear from and interact with leaders and entrepreneurs throughout our community sharing their journey, challenges and encouraging the students with advice to help them achieve their dreams.
On June 18th at The Well in Norman forty-five young entrepreneurs sold their very own products the Children’s Business Fair. Some made their first-ever sale while other seasoned entrepreneurs tested out new additions to their merchandise. We had an incredible panel of judges who offered real time feedback and helped with the very tough job of determining the winners in each age category for Most Original Idea, Highest Business Potential and Best Presentation. Community partnerships are essential to make opportunities for our students like this possible. We are incredibly grateful to work closely with Evergreen: an Acton Academy and The Well to support our young entrepreneurs in this annual event that inspires our young dreamers and doers to go after their BIG dreams!
Meet Mr. Nigel Hinds, owner of The Coal Pot Catering and volunteer chef at Loveworks. Nigel started volunteering on a weekly basis in Spring 2020, sharing his creativity and passion for food and delighting our students with his Caribbean fare. He provided our summer camp students with dinner before they took the stage to pitch their projects and businesses. A fun fact about him was that as a child he was in boy scouts in Trinidad West Indies, which taught him survival skills and enabled him to travel to all of the islands in the Caribbean!
We are hopeful that you see how the support of our donors and business partners directly impacts the heart of our students and their families. Thank you to our donors and volunteers for being part of our story and investing in the lives of our students at Loveworks!
