The Entrepreneurial Center (E-Center) in Phillipsburg,KS. will host a FREE regional Train the Trainer workshop on Friday, December 9, 2011 from 8:30 am till 3:30 pm. This workshop will introduce you to the EntreprneurialShip Investigation (ESI) curriculum and provide you with the tools needed to develop a successful youth entrepreneurial program in your community. Instructors for this training will be Nancy Eberle and Dr. Diane Vigna from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
EntrepreneurShip Investigation (ESI) is an exciting, interactive, and comprehensive curriculum project designed for youth, ages 10-19. This curriculum was developed with four audiences in mind: Middle and high schools, 4 – H clubs, youth organizations and community organizations. ESI uses a variety of tools to help participants develop their entrepreneurial skills and find their business niche. Through exciting activities, case studies and current technology, participants are transformed into budding entrepreneurs!
After completing all levels of the curriculum, youth will have the skills and tools to start their own business, as well as have a completed business and marketing plan – the “road map” to the entrepreneur’s success.
Finally, participants will learn that they can do all of these things without moving to a large city. The ESI curriculum provides an opportunity to reach young people; enabling them to explore opportunities they can create for themselves with the support of their community. Check out the website to learn more about this curriculum: http://esi.unl.edu/
This FREE training is being sponsored in part by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation and University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
