Enterprising Minds

Do you have a project or issue that our young people can work on?

We can offer you fresh ideas, fun and a chance to help develop the entrepreneurs of the future. Our young people gain real-world experience.

The Business and Enterprise Camps will be launched in July 2014 and are aimed at 11-16 years olds who have an interest in areas such as Business, self employment, leadership or those just wanting to challenge themselves with doing something different over the summer.

Most school holiday activities are based around sports or performing arts, however many young people do not have an interest in these areas. The week long Business and Enterprise camps will offer those budding young apprentices an insight into what it means to be an entrepreneur, be enterprising and to work in business, whilst obviously being fun. It is the summer holidays after all!

How your organisation can be involved

The young people will work on a real life business project/issue throughout their week at the camp enabling them to gain real world experience around key areas of business and enterprise.  If your organisation has an issue or project that you would like to develop and would like some fresh ideas and strategies created for you, then please get in touch.

At the end of the week you will be invited back to hear presentations from the young people themselves about their business ideas and plans they have developed for your organisation.
