Community members gathered to learn about the Aboriginal Youth Entrepreneurship Program (AYEP) coming to Sioux Lookout’s high school were given an assignment.
They included First Nation entrepreneurs and student counsellors; representatives of government youth programs and the Town of Sioux Lookout; staff from Lac Seul Training Centre of Excellence and Confederation College; and business and bank managers.
Steve Poling, principal of Queen Elizabeth (QE) District High School, gave them their task and the materials they could work with – plastic cup and fork, stir sticks, paper plate, napkin, newspaper and to put it all together, duct tape. They needed to create a product to hypothetically sell, along with plans for marketing, pricing, profit and philanthropy. Working in pairs, the 16 participants at the Centennial Centre would have five minutes to get the job done.
