Our proven School Enterprise Challenge uses the experience of planning & running a real business in school to guide students in developing essential skills for a fulfilling life. This innovation was created during Covid & school closures, enabling young people to develop soft & business skills whilst having fun. Despite lockdowns, they could work towards creating the change they want to see.
In Enterprise Adventure a young person registers on our App, entering a self-paced micro-learning journey planning & launching a social enterprise; joining a community of other Adventurers competing for prizes.
Addresses the problem: Adventurers record a meaningful 2-step increase in creativity, problem solving & aiming high, measured in a proven international framework for understanding skills growth. Entrepreneurial acumen demonstrated: over 400 businesses planned, 57 launched, av. US$32 income.
The online platform can be accessed on any device with internet access. Our propriety curriculum combines micro learning, gamification & community. Adventurers advance at their own pace through 22 missions. Each Mission sets specific learning & basic theory to explore through games, video, quizzes; followed by a real-world challenge e.g. talking with business owners; & reflection. Live online sessions, daily discussions on specific topics, masterclasses & community engagement enhance missions
Over 2,000 young people have joined Enterprise Adventure (more than 60% girls) through own marketing among our and other global school networks, Ambassador teachers and Adventurers.
