FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 10, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Founder and Executive Director Ismael Hernandez is pleased to announce the Freedom & Virtue Institute (FVI) will hold their inaugural young Entrepreneurs Fair to showcase their Self Reliance Clubs (SRC) on October 20, 2018 from 9 am to 2 pm at FleaMasters, located at 4135 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd in Fort Myers. Congressman Francis Rooney who serves on the 19th District in Florida will be on hand to welcome and visit the booths of the SRC participants.

Several SRCs and local area schools will be on hand to promote and sell their produce, crafts and projects they have created. “As a member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, I am focused on how we can create opportunities to give each student the tools they need to determine their level of success and achievement in life,” as stated on Congressman Rooney’s website. Proceeds from these sales will help sustain the clubs through the rest of the year.

The Self Reliance Clubs, which include elementary and middle schools in Lee and Collier County, provide students with the opportunity to earn money for school and other education related supplies. Witnessed through the achievement of goals, school performance, extra-curricular activities like urban farming, and volunteerism, these participants experience success and the reward that comes from initiative, hard work and self-reliance.

Gates open at 9:00 am and it is open to the public. “These students have worked so hard over the years to build their clubs and achieve success,” states Mark Wardell, Director of the Self Reliance Clubs. “We wanted to expand their knowledge and inspire the entrepreneurial drive we teach and see evident in many of our participants”.

“Our sincere thanks go to FleaMasters as our Title Sponsor for this fabulous event, their dedication in helping students flourish is truly appreciated,” states Ismael Hernandez, Executive Director of the Institute. “We invite all to come and see what a little initiative and self reliance can do to change a person’s life.” The Self-Reliance Clubs exist to educate the next generation to understand that they are the champions of their own lives. Through their own initiative, ingenuity, and hard work, they will realize that they have the power to determine the direction of their future.

About The Self-Reliance Clubs
The Self-Reliance Clubs exist to educate the next generation to understand that they are the champions of their own lives. Through their own initiative, ingenuity, and hard work, they will realize that they have the power to determine the direction of their future.
Self-Reliance Clubs are set up in schools to provide under-privileged students with the opportunity to work in various entrepreneurship initiatives, learn economics, earn money, and gain self-esteem and a sense of individual freedom. The ‘money’ earned can then be used to purchase school supplies, equipment, and clothing.
