OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH THE BIG ISSUE TAKES ENTREPRENEURSHIP TO THE STREETS

Our young entrepreneurs from Goodwood College, Isilimela, Cravenby, Leap, and Saxonsea Societies are participating in an exciting pilot project with The Big Issue Magazine, whereby society members will take to the streets of their local communities to sell copies of the publication as part of their business/entrepreneurship training. Participating learners will put their selling skills to the test to sharpen their business abilities and talents, while raising funds for resources for their Entrepreneur Societies. Based on the success of the pilot project, SA Teen Entrepreneur and The Big Issue will roll out the programme to more Entrepreneur Societies in the near future. 
 
If you wish to register your interest in the project as a school or Entrepreneur Society, please contact our office on 021 788 2775, or email nadia.snyders@teenentrepreneur.co.za.

LYDIA VISITS MIT IN THE USA TO GAIN GLOBAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP INSIGHTS

Lydia visited MIT (Massachusetts University of Technology) in the United States in early August to learn more about their entrepreneurship programme, a component of which targets school-going youth. 
 
Called Launch X, the programme exists to ensure that students all over America, and the world, have the tools they need to take the initiative to build the lives they envision for themselves.  Launch X is run mainly on an online platform, allowing many more learners access to learning materials and opportunities to exchange experiences and information.  “This is a logical next step for us at Teen Entrepreneur too”, says Lydia, “Practically every young person has access to a cell phone and the Internet, and the power of our programme can really be demonstrated online since we will reach far more people on a national scale than we currently are able to on a manual system”.

“My colleagues at MIT share our passion for entrepreneurship and we share a common vision of empowering as many young people as we are able to reach with our programmes to embracing a culture and a spirit of entrepreneurship; not only will it benefit those who intend starting their own businesses, it will also benefit those who pursue professional career paths in any field of study.

OUR MINI #TEENBOSS EVENTS ARE GAINING HUGE TRACTION AMONGST OUR YOUTH

We completed the last of a series of mini-#TEENBOSS events with a group of learners from Stellenbosch in recent weeks. 
 
There is always such an air of excitement at these events, and the team which we walked through their entrepreneur paces on Saturday, 25 August at The Range in Tokai was no different.  It is so rewarding at the end of such a session to see the keenness and passion, and above all the understanding and appreciation that entrepreneurship is able to change the grim economic conditions which so many of our people, and most particularly our young people, are facing.

If you are part of a youth group and wish to receive entrepreneur training and coaching, or you want more information about starting an Entrepreneur Society at your school, please do get in touch with us on 021 788 2775 or nadia.snyders@teenentrepreneur.co.za.  Similarly, if you are in business and wish to support an Entrepreneur Society financially, or by means of coaching or mentoring, we would love to hear from you!
