SIFE Educating Community Children

Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE) is working with elementary school students to teach simple economic principles such as supply and demand, inventory and added value.

SIFE members will be at La Plata Elementary School Nov. 19 conducting a Mini Market with students in grades 4-6. The projects will simulate a market by allowing students to buy raw materials, then make, buy and sell products.

SIFE is also seeking volunteers for a project aimed at raising awareness about identity theft, e-mail scams and other threats to consumers.

The organization is planning to work with U.S. Bank, and could possibly present the project at the Kirksville Telecommunications Resource Center (TCRC) to attract more community involvement.  For information about volunteering with SIFE contact Helen Pham at
