Our programs are designed to give young people skills and experiences that augment their school studies and give them new skills that aren’t easily acquired through the current curriculum.
We believe in the power of entrepreneurship to help all young people become more adaptable, employable and competitive adults with comprehensive life-skills. We aren’t just trying to produce more entrepreneurs, we want all young people to have the experience of entrepreneurship from an early age so that it can help shape an agile mindset and give them 21st century skills they will need in the future regardless of their path.
We’ve got strong evidence over the 10 years we’ve been running our programs that ALL learners can excel at entrepreneurship regardless of their background or even if they aren’t gifted in the traditional ‘three As’ – academic, artistic and athletic.
We’ve seen a lot of young people who were depressed or distracted, had low-self esteem and no confidence or dyslexia and other learning difficulties, all have a transformation through the programs, graduating with confidence and a new belief in themselves.
