Laurens Central School is in the process of creating young entrepreneurs with a new class that's been going on there.  This extracurricular program is called TREP$ and it teaches kids about the entire process of being an entrepreneur: from creating a product, all the way to getting it into the hands of consumers.

Kids in grades 3 through 12 have been busy at Laurens Central School creating their own products and getting them ready to sell at the TREP$ Marketplace sales event this Sunday from 1pm to 3pm at the School.  The public is invited to shop and purchase (with cash only) a wide variety of kid-created items as the culmination of this program.

Students Magnolia Lincoln and Brock Mann, along with program instructors Lynette Lions and Ann Winchester, visited with me and listeners to talk about this valuable program and provide some more details.  Listen below to find out what's being offered up at the TREP$ Marketplace.

For more information about the TREP$ program or the Marketplace event this Sunday call Laurens Central School at (607) 432-2050
