Children’s Business Fairs

Welcome to We Are Hype, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship and leadership skills in young children. Our Children’s Business Fairs provide a unique opportunity for children to showcase their creativity, innovation, and business acumen.

Our events in Jacksonville bring together young entrepreneurs, ages 6 to 14, to sell their products and services to the local community. At our fairs, you’ll find an array of creative and innovative products made by kids for kids, including handcrafted items, snacks, jewelry, and more.

By participating in our fairs, children gain valuable experience in marketing, customer service, and financial management. They learn the importance of hard work, persistence, and creativity as they turn their passions into profitable businesses.

At We Are Hype, Inc., we believe that every child has the potential to become a successful entrepreneur. Our Children’s Business Fairs provide a safe and supportive environment for kids to take their first steps toward achieving their dreams. Join us for our next fair and witness the creativity and business savvy of Jacksonville’s young entrepreneurs.

Year Round School Supply Drives

Welcome to We Are Hype, Inc.’s website, where we’re proud to share information about our Annual School Supply Drives!

As a nonprofit organization based in Jacksonville, we understand the importance of education and how it can positively impact the lives of children and families in our community. However, we also know that many students and their families struggle to afford basic school supplies, which can make it challenging for them to succeed academically.

That’s where our Annual School Supply Drives come in. Each year, we work tirelessly to collect and distribute school supplies to students in need throughout the Jacksonville area. With the help of generous donors, volunteers, and community partners, we’ve been able to provide thousands of backpacks, pencils, notebooks, and other essential supplies to students who might not have otherwise had access to them.

At We Are Hype, Inc., we believe that every child deserves a chance to succeed, and that starts with having the tools they need to learn and grow. By supporting our Annual School Supply Drives, you’re not only helping individual students, but also investing in the future of our community as a whole.

Thank you for your interest in our organization and our mission. We hope you’ll consider joining us in our efforts to make a difference in the lives of Jacksonville students.
