With curriculum time getting busier and busier, a great way to inspire and empower students is before and after school with extracurricular programs for students. Our after school programs are fantastic at doing this and allow us to get students thinking big and focussing on cross-curricular, project-based learning as they tackle challenges, build skills and work on projects that get them thinking about the world around them and the exciting opportunities open to their generation.
With everything from designing future cities to launching influencer brands, building businesses, working with technology and more, we have a range of standard programs to choose from, or we're able to customise a program to your school community. Our after school programs typically run for 6-8 weeks and cost $30 per student per week.
The Young Entrepreneurs Hub is predominantly run over the school holidays with four days of workshops available for students each holiday break. Hosted in the WeWork Co-Working Space at 310 Edward Street, Brisbane City, and facilitated by the BOP Industries team, these workshops typically consist of hands-on masterclasses, one on one mentoring for students, and dedicated work time for students to apply their learnings.
Students are welcome to attend sessions as frequently as they progress through their business journey. Our 2023 programs are as follows:
