A Gathering of Future Entrepreneurs at OLL
Many of the 7th and 8th graders are participating in a brand new program this year call TREP$ which is short for Entrepreneurs. The students develop their own businesses while being mentored by parents that are actual business owners themselves. The program culminates with a flea market style "TREP$ Marketplace" where all are invited to come and view the many businesses the students are formally launching.
