Cromwell YES Kickstart | Tīmata
Tuesday 3 March
10.30am – 12.30pm
Cromwell Presbyterian Church
10 Elspeth Street, Cromwell
We are excited that due to the expansion of YES in the Otago region we are able to offer a Kickstart Day in Cromwell for the first time!
YES takes Year 12 & 13 students through a series of entrepreneurial experiences to help develop 21st century skills in real-world situations by working to their strengths.
The future of work is becoming increasingly more difficult to accurately predict or even imagine. Determining and focusing on the types of skills and knowledge young people need from educators is more important than ever. What is clear is that it will not be the same skills that have served us during the last century or even the last decade.
YES use a combination of teachers and members of our local business community to provide an experience that is both authentic and relevant to the world we live in. Adapting to changing circumstances, failing fast, feeling success and learning how to collaborate in teams helps students to unleash their entrepreneurial spirit. YES financial literacy resources teach students to be smart with their money so that they can have more choices in life.
During the Kickstart | Tīmata sessions, we take students through the process of ideation and validation of their product or service. These are their first steps on a year-long journey, developing and taking to market their first real business.
The most valuable part of these Kickstart | Tīmata sessions for the students is the feedback and input from speed coaches – That’s where you come in!
Let’s start the year with a bang!
In addition to YES Kickstart | TīmataDay, there are a few ways that you can be involved with YES teams for 2020 - these are outlined in more detailed in the PDF attached
