Entrepreneurship program seeking community support – Fort Frances Times

May 22, 2014

Tours, job shadowing, meet-and-greets, and presentations.
That’s the kind of entrepreneurship class that will be offered at Fort Frances High School this fall when the Aboriginal Youth Entrepreneurship Program starts up.

But in order to offer such a unique experience to his students, teacher Chris Hill is trying to get the community involved.
“We want a lot of help from community groups, so whether that’s people coming to speak about local businesses, people who have worked their way up in business, or going out to see businesses,” he explained.

“The big push with this is a lot of field trips and a lot of interaction with community members.”

Hill said he’s tried to do is reach out to community groups by e-mailing them and giving them a fax sheet showing what the program is all about.

“My hope is that at any point I can get people to come in and speak to the class, do a meet-and-greet, or do a collection of things,” he remarked.
