A free experiential learning program available to high school students across Canada, Dragons’ Nest challenges students from Grades 9 and 12 to create a business venture right in the classroom.
Supported by business mentors and their teachers, students work together to create their own ventures, with funds raised going towards a registered charity of their choice. The program features teacher-friendly lesson plans and activities, and offers engaging classroom processes that reinforce teamwork, collaboration and critical thinking. Students are supported in the development of global competencies in business, entrepreneurship, and corporate social responsibility, preparing them for the future world of work.
At the conclusion of the program, students submit their business ventures through a video pitch. The program culminates in an opportunity for finalists to present and pitch their ventures to a panel of Dragons.
