UT Extension Programs
UT/TSU Extension Cheatham County agents are working hard to transition materials to virtual classroom settings in an effort to support our local students. An exciting opportunity starting this Friday is an on-line Entrepreneurship Club. This club will be open to all students in grades 6 – 12 who have an interest in starting a summer business or developing a big idea for long term benefits. We will be using the curriculum from UT Extension and Nebraska Extension. Students will learn how to develop their ideas, create a business plan, market their business, fund their products and much more. Best of all we will be using a virtual classroom (zoom) which will allow the students to talk and interact with one another during this time of social isolation.
Please share this FREE opportunity with the students you serve. More information and registration can be found at the following links:
On My Own Curriculum
During the spring, both Tammi Fralick and Sierra Knaus are both working hard to deliver the On My Own curriculum to our 7th and 8th-grade students throughout Cheatham County. This curriculum teaches the students all about their paycheck, deductions, has a career aptitude component, and then gives them a career and family. They then use the salary given to them and have to make all of their monthly purchases. Most of the participants have difficult financial decisions to make and learn the reality facing them as they grow up. It is our hope that they will take what they learn and make wise education and financial decisions as they grow up. Although we didn’t have this program scheduled for either Harpeth Middle School, Cheatham Middle School or Pleasant View Christian, we decided to get creative and figure out a way to do this virtually. Hopefully, it will be available in full upon returning from Spring Break.
