Jazz Keyes Instructor

Hello, Families! 

I'm Jazz Keyes-Perkins, the founder and lead instructor of the Kidpreneur Coaching Academy. With a deep passion for empowering young minds, I bring over a decade of dedicated experience as an educator and mentor. My journey has been enriched by diverse roles that have consistently allowed me to impact students' lives significantly.

My Story

My journey as an educator and mentor began over a decade ago. It's been a transformative path fueled by a deep commitment to empowering young minds.

Over ten years ago, I collaborated with United Way to launch a literacy program. This initiative aimed to ensure that children in high-risk communities achieved reading proficiency by the crucial milestone of 4th grade. Witnessing the profound impact of education on young lives, I was ignited to do more; this led me to the role of Dean of Students at an elementary school. In this capacity, I played a pivotal role in crafting and implementing educational curricula and programs that catered to the diverse needs of students. 

 

My journey led me to the middle and high school levels, where I directly engaged with students, nurturing their learning and growth.

 

Additionally, I championed a community grant program that provided children with specialized arts instruction. This endeavor was designed to cultivate creativity and pave the way toward creative entrepreneurship. These experiences further solidified my belief in the power of holistic education and its potential to shape young individuals into well-rounded, empowered citizens.

 

My focus has honed in on teaching entrepreneurship in the past eight years. This shift was sparked by witnessing the unmistakable passion ignited within my daughter. Seeing her enthusiasm and potential, I recognized the importance of fostering entrepreneurial skills from an early age. This realization fueled my dedication to guiding children on the exciting entrepreneurship journey.

 

As I continue to evolve and enrich my education understanding, I am pursuing my Doctorate in Global Entrepreneurship, emphasizing Business Management and Marketing. In parallel, I hold a Bachelors's in Organizational and Corporate Communications, a Masters's in Clinical Psychology, and a distinguished certificate in Women's Entrepreneurship from Cornell University—a testament to my commitment to education and practical expertise.

 

Beyond academia, I am a published author and sought-after speaker, contributing to the entrepreneurship and youth development discourse. What brings me immense joy is that my journey has also inspired my daughter to become a published author, speaker, and a young entrepreneur in her own right.

 

Thank you for visiting my site, and thank you in advance for entrusting me with your brilliant young minds. Let's nurture the boundless potential within every child, fostering a generation of confident, innovative, and resilient business leaders.

 

Warm regards,

 

Jazz Keyes-Perkins
