Mission Statement:

Our mission is to provide opportunities for young people to explore their inner entrepreneur, build habits for a life of financial success, and achieve independence. Through first-hand experience, they will be prepared for a responsible and proactive adulthood, confident that they can accomplish whatever they choose.


Alicia Hoffman opened Moolah U of Northwest Austin in 2013 with the mission of preparing youth to be great with money.


That program grew and in 2016, Alicia launched WhizBizKids with the goal of combining all of the beloved financial lessons with a focus on life-skills.   Through skill building and working with business mentors kids and teens will be able to start building their dreams!


Through the practice of starting and running a business in camp, and the life-skills workshops of the Apprentice Program, participants gain the skills and knowledge needed for a confident, proactive adulthood.


WhizBizKids offers week-long summer camps for kids and teens. Campers work together to start a business, pitch it to investors, create products, and sell their wares. Campers make all of the business decisions and practice leadership, teamwork, and integrity. In the end, they leave camp with a newfound confidence and they keep all of their profits!


Graduates of the camps can join the Apprentice Program. The Apprentice Program offers monthly workshops during the school year on vital life-skills like professional communications, managing their own commitments, and developing habits for financial freedom. Apprentices are also matched with a Mentor in the Austin business community. Apprentices work on the WhizBizKids team at the summer camps and can advance to a paid summer job.

This team fills fast. The new season starts in December and the schedule for participating at camps next summer will be finalized in early 2017. Registration for the Apprentice Program is open from December to May.

The program includes:

  • Monthly workshops on vital life skills such as writing a resume, arranging meetings, creating a budget, and more
  • Optional field trips to entrepreneurial events in the community (at no extra cost)
  • Mentoring with a local business leader
  • Participating in the Leadership Team at camp during the summer, which after advancement, is a paid position at $300 a week




WhizBizKids offers real-life, real-money, and real-business experience for kids and teens in a fun, 5-day camp. Through this super fun, hands-on experience, kids and teens learn how money works and the value of money. By managing their own business throughout the week, they learn how to use their resources wisely and how to grow their money. This interactive experience gives them the tools to develop their own creative ideas and explore their inner entrepreneur while gaining skills in leadership and integrity.


Campers walk away with confidence in their own ability to achieve financial success and accomplish whatever they choose!
