Description

Calling Young Change Agents: A social entrepreneurial incubator for young people ages 10-13 years.

This two and a half day workshop will interest young people with a passion for social change through entrepreneurship with a technology focus.

This program is for 10-13 year olds only.

Facilitated by Young Change Agents this program encourages young people to see problems as opportunities.

It provides them with the tools to think creatively, build skills in critical thinking and communication and empowers them to believe that they are good enough to be entrepreneurs, leaders and world changers.

Best of all, it’s fun and exciting to learn how to create a social start-up. We use tools and techniques utilised in real start-up incubators and just like a lean start-up, there will be limited time to get stuff done!

With input from industry leaders this program with give young people an invaluable start on their entrepreneurial journey.

What to expect!
1. A fast pace environment -you will work in teams to solve a problem you care about!

2. Lots of games in teams

3. Lots of brainstorming (we call it ideation!) and presenting your creative ideas (we really care what you think!)

4. Creating a business that focuses on making a difference to someone else or our planet
