Are you looking to harness the summer of 2021 to help students develop their talents and passions while becoming reengaged in their education? Entrepreneur education can help students strengthen their “entrepreneurial mindsets,” identify skills and interests, and explore ways in which students can apply their talents to solve problems in their lives and communities. Join this session to learn about entrepreneurial education as well as free k-12 resources and events that are flexible and can be facilitated in virtual or in-person environments, and also support other program goals such as social-emotional learning, career readiness, STEM, and service learning.
Entrepreneurship is more than starting a business, it’s a way of thinking and acting. It’s a mindset and set of skills. Mindsets such as creativity, opportunity seeking, adaptability, persistence, and optimism help students reframe problems as opportunities and feel empowered to exert agency in their own lives. These same entrepreneurial mindsets and skills are critical to student success, both in and out of the classroom. They are also high-demand, employability skills in today’s workforce. Through entrepreneurship programming, engage your local civic, business, and elected leaders to participate as mentors, guest speakers, and pitch challenge judges and watch them become champions for your youth and your programs.
