Our next-generation needs
Silega Kids is dedicated to holding workshops for children from 4 to 18 years old with the purpose of learning useful business skills in their professional lives.
WHAT CAREER DO YOU WANT FOR YOUR CHILDREN?
a) Work for an organization
b) Own a business
No matter what your answer is, we can help
We want our children to be successful. Why not even more successful than we are. And success has many faces. On one side we want our children to be happy with what they do in their lives. On the other side, we also want them to earn well, apply their talents, have meaningful work, and many more. And as a parent, you are faced with so many overwhelming decisions that can impact the future of your children. The pace of change and uncertainty makes options even more ambiguous. What if the job your children will do someday does not even exist today?
By 2027, 50% of people will be self-employed.
Traditional workforce growth
Self-employed workforce growth
The self-employed workforce is grouting three times faster than the traditional workforce. The trend is clear – future generations will struggle to find a steady job or maybe will just prefer to avoid steady jobs because of various reasons.
Does it mean my children will be a business owner?
Not necessarily. But most certainly future generations will switch various career paths in their lifetime. While having a business is one of many options, our goal is to provide learning that can help advance your children’s future prospects no matter which of the three options they will choose.
