Kids Connect 2 “Grab n Go Lunch fundraiser”

On Friday June 28, our Kids Connect 2 group displayed their entrepreneurial skills with their Grab n Go Lunch fundraiser. This summer, the Kids Connect (social skills group) is focusing on working together to tackle large tasks that require planning, preparation and execution. They shared their ideas over 2 weeks, and used that time to prep and plan for the fundraiser. They developed the menu, developed an order form, tallied the orders, developed a grocery list based on the orders, shopped for the needed items and finally executed the fundraiser.
Following the fundraiser, the group-spent time discussing what worked well and even developed some personal goals to work on for the next time.
