"The entrepreneurial mystique? It's not magic; it's not mysterious, & it has nothing to do with the genes. It's a discipline, & like any discipline, it can be learned."~ Peter F Drucker;
[The foregoing quote is my inspiration for creating & conceptualising a 12-month, 52-module 'Business School for Kids & Teens'. It will be one of my new projects in Indonesia, as the curriculum design involves the holding of 3 outdoor adventure camps - to inculcate risk-taking, team-building & leadership - of 3 day's duration each, to coincide with a breakdown of 3 semesters for the entire program.
Indonesia, with its vast & beautiful landscapes, has all the natural facilities for such camp venues.
Classroom learning will be combined with a multi- as well as an inter-disciplinary content immersion, in conjunction with project-based actvities, individual projects & group discussions, field-trips to businesses, interviews of successful entrepeneurs, portfolio assessment, sales bazaar or trade show, plus live presentations involving business plan pitches to a real-world venture capitalist panel.
The curriculum is even designed to include a career exploration module, to allow the kid or teen participants to consider a safer, alternative route - in order to gain valuable professional working experience - prior to embarking on an entrepreneurial initiative.
It will be a great opportunity to infuse young people with the entrepreneurial mindset. The entrepreneurs of tomorrow are in our schools today!]
