The IDEA Centre is what you make it.
Is this program for you?
If you are open to new ideas and have a great idea for a business or social venture - this program is for you!
You'll spend 2 periods a day working on your idea while you meet business advisors and work with students from across the province. If you don't have an idea and are willing to work on finding one - this program is still for you.
What's in it?
You will interact with business experts, community organizations, mentors and learn how to pitch your ideas. This program requires you to be independant, hard working, supportive of others and a great team player. You will learn to validate your business idea through market research, learning about finances and learn how to confidently sell your idea to others.
The program is worth 2 course credits. If you are interested, see your guidance counselor for further information about whether you can choose it as a course selection.
