Why We Teach Kids How to Network

Kid Networking is a program of The Collective Access that teaches kids how to network, business etiquette, and the importance of relationships. All of us at TCA have become successful through hard-work, determination , and the relationships we have built. Relationships provide access to knowledge, guidance, resources, and the human need to feel connected. Check out both videos to check out our approach to educating the youth on the importance of building and sustaining valuable relationships. 

Videos from Our Various Kids Networking Events

The Collective Access presents… Teeing Off w/ Pro Kids Golf. Check out our video from one of our several Kids Networking events. Partnering with Pro Kids Golf, these events teach kids that networking is fun and happens everywhere! After all, how many business deals and partnerships are began or finalized on golf courses, over drinks and dinners, or anywhere else?!

The Collective Access presents … The Collective Alliance on May 10, 2018. Over 30 youth learned cornerstone skills in networking, such as shake hands, smile, active listening, and conversation starters. An event in our Kids Networking program, the youth also created their first business cards as well as a tenacious competition to gather business cards.

Press play to feel the hope and promise that our youth are getting ready to deliver!

Adult Networking and Fundraising Events

Casino Night and Networking Fundraiser. One of our signature Adult Networking events. These are the places in which we practice what we preach. Join us for our next event!

On January 26, The Collective Access partnered with Lamp of Learning and the University Club to host Daymond John's book signing and release of "Rise and Grind." Most importantly, over a dozen local youth won free tickets to the event through our "young entrepreneur" contest. All proceeds directly benefited both TCA and Lamp of Learning.
