The New Marketplace is Coming Soon
In the meantime, learn more about the young entrepreneurs that are taking the country by storm.
What Are EdCorps?
Education Corporations (or EdCorps) are student-run companies that are run by students as a way to learn real world skills and make their communities better places. Every EdCorp sells a product or service that allows students to explore their creativity, engage in team building, and develop an entrepreneurial mindset. Plus, when students create things for real customers, THEY become more invested in their learning and their community.
The EdCorps Community
Any class can build an EdCorp. In fact, student-run businesses around the country are being operated from Biology, Math, English, and Art classes. They’re producing furniture and beauty products, books and boats. Curious to see more? Check out these student businesses to see EdCorps in Action!
EdCorps in Action
The 8th graders running Jungle Jars sell succulents and lanterns to benefit the people of South Sudan. Profits from every succulent sold are donated to Water for South Sudan - a nonprofit whose mission is to bring fresh, clean water to the people of rural southern Sudan.
Sugar Kids Beauty
While running a profitable sugar scrub business, these first graders learn core subjects like math via accounting, science as it related to herb growing and production, and art while designing for their business. They’ve sold their product to all 50 states and have used profits to support causes like local veterans, children’s hospitals, and hunger in their community.
