Georgetown Global Challengers
Georgetown Global Challengers invites high school students in years 11 and 12 to delve deeper into the world of Social Entrepreneurship through an online program combined with a practicum
The students will be introduced to the theoretical framework for Social Entrepreneurship. Through this program, our young entrepreneurs delve into the world of Social Entrepreneurship through a series of learning exercises such as lectures, guided discussions, reflection, brainstorming, and application. The asynchronous format of the online program allows international and local students to access course materials and complete assignments at their own pace and schedule, which can be particularly beneficial for students who may have other school and familial commitments. This format also eliminates the need for students to be physically present on campus, making it more accessible to both local and international students. All sessions will be conducted through google classrooms. There are seven workshops focusing on different topics. After completion of the program, the student will receive a certificate of completion.
Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able achieve the following objectives:
- Gain a holistic perspective about social entrepreneurship (ideation to implementation)
- Identify social issues and find solutions or ideas to remedy them
- Learn the skills to become a social entrepreneur and identify techniques of business pitching
- Gain insights into the business world and its relationship to social entrepreneurship
- Create a prototype of a business model alongside other young entrepreneurs.
