Building The Skills Required For Life’s Unpredictable Journey
Schools and districts are embracing the necessity to prepare students to navigate ambiguity and exert agency over their own learning — the skills needed to succeed in the future economy.
Students must be prepared through acquisition of not just content knowledge, but also the skills and mindset they need to work collaboratively, solve problems they care about, and handle upheaval.
These are the skills and traits at the core of entrepreneurship, and teaching youth entrepreneurship can propel students along their journeys no matter what meets them post-graduation, regardless of interest, job or path.
Student Entrepreneurship brings Purpose to Learning
Do your students care about what they’re learning? Why does it matter? Because if they care and find purpose in learning, they are engaged and are more deeply connected to the material. Purposeful Learning requires a different kind of curriculum. It demands authentic experiences that enable students to work together to identify and tackle problems, explore ways to add value to their communities and connect with the world of work. Youth entrepreneurship curriculum enables these experiences.
