Description

An innovative program that invests in our future thought leaders, change-makers and status-quo challengers - the new ‘Social Impact’ Teen Accelerator is open to all Year 6 to 12 students in the ACT and region.

This after-school program is delivered by Lighthouse Business Innovation Centre (Lighthouse), the organisation that delivers the popular Teen Start-Up school holiday competitions.

Each term focuses on learning a particular 21st Century skill like problem solving, creative and critical thinking, presentation skills and working effectively in groups. Students will have the opportunity to apply their new skills to real world problems in a fun and interactive environment.

In Term 2 2017, the ‘Social Impact’ Teen Accelerator program will run on Wednesdays from 3:30pm to 5:00pm in the Senior Representative Centre (SRC) at Orana Steiner School, starting on May 10th.


What does it involve?

- 7-week after school program
(Wednesdays, 10 May to 21 June)

- designed to teach 21st Century skills
