Let's Get Down to Business
Thinking Like an Entrepreneur
We begin to work in teams to learn more about starting a non-profit company and have fun with business games.
Business units are formed as teams explore and refine ideas. We tackle customer-focused activities and define roles for each student.
Students identify community needs and discuss what drives them based on these categories:
Students are placed on teams based on their schedule, which projects they are interested in, and what strengths they have to add to a well-rounded team.
Culmination Event with Awards:
At the end of the program, student projects are showcased at a live event. One "People's Choice" award will be voted upon by everyone who attends the event. Three awards will be decided by a panel of judges. No team can receive more than one of the judged awards but the People's Choice award can be won in addition to one of these three.
