Hands-on Workshop on Entrepreneurship
Launchpad introduces classrooms to the concept of entrepreneurship and provides a real-life example of someone who has started their own business. We walk the class through the brainstorming process, lay out the steps to create a business plan, and provide structured time for groups to develop their own ideas and present them to the class.
3-5 Days, Your Classroom Space
Our volunteers come ready to seamlessly integrate Launchpad into your unique space. Our program can run over the course of 3-5 days, for single class periods or longer blocks of time. We work with each school individually to find the best way to fit the Launchpad curriculum into the schedule.
