Collier County Public School’s Entrepreneurship Program offers project-based authentic learning in a real-world environment. The entrepreneurship classes are unlike standard classes in that they are very collaborative and hands-on. The CCPS classroom teachers collaborate with volunteers, both retired and current business professionals, who mentor student teams, provide real-world context, and champion student efforts. Champions For Learning recruits and retains the volunteers engaged in this program.
Students enrolled in the Entrepreneurship Program embody the spirit of an entrepreneur through their learning and application of business start-up practices and concepts to projects they’re passionate about. They build, test, learn, apply, and embrace the cycle of experimentation, and make discoveries from their successes and failures. Students work in teams with the support of a dynamic mix of teachers, coaches, and mentors, to foster deeper learning and skill-building.
