Despega project is the first initiative, born after several years of
research, that works on entrepreneurship and creativity. Children
need an effective financial education that awakens their genius and
is not included in the school curriculum. To this end, a wide range
of activities were carefully designed for children aged 6 to 12,
which are being developed in different collectives and associations,
as well as workshops in collaboration with the Valencia City Council.
It can also be done in collaboration with banks.
programme is based on the four main areas of entrepreneurship:
- Self-concept: The importance of knowing ourselves.
- Creativity: The capacity to generate new ideas.
- Financial education: What is money for?
- Entrepreneurship: My own business and qualities of entrepreneurs.
each area a series of activities are worked with which the children
learn to undertake in an innovative and creative way. There are 9
activities per course, one activity per month, plus the corresponding
follow-up session. For this we have developed “our own
currency”, the Valentines, with which the children will be able
to have the experience of handling money. It is also integrated in
the programming the economic history or money, a fundamental matter
of financial education.
addition to this, the children acquire a series of skills such as:
taking: Ability to plan for results-oriented activities.
Food and sport.
Ability to express oneself and manage one’s emotions.
Creative problem solving and constant innovation.
and values: Solidarity, ecology and corporate social responsibility.
Resistance to failure.
Positive view of situations.
Trust in oneself and recognize one’s own talent.
also provides psycho-educational counselling for parents so that they
can be a support for the child. These workshops can be given for
specific interested groups or by attending the sessions at IVAPEC
facilities (dates to be consulted).
