During our Mastery Block scholars will engage in an entrepreneurship curriculum designed by our partner at NFTE
Scholars will activate their Entrepreneurial Mindset through hands-on activities, learning to innovate and think like an entrepreneur. The year will end with an Ideation Fair where scholars showcase their ideas to the school community.
Scholars will travel further along the entrepreneurial pathway by learning how to attract customers and create economically sustainable businesses. The school community will attend a Vote With Your Dollars Fair, where 7th graders pitch their ideas to volunteer “investors.”
Scholars will complete their entrepreneurial learning with NFTE’s signature Entrepreneurship 1 course, creating fully fleshed out business plans, presenting to volunteer judges in NFTE’s Regional Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge. Scholars will work with business plan coaches from the local entrepreneurial community, building out their network of professional mentors along the way.
