The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
A 2 to 4-day program that views the UN SDGs as Problems to be Solved
This program educates and empowers the next generation to contribute meaningfully to solving sustainable development problems in their communities and beyond. The United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has been the driving force behind this learning initiative.
The program's curriculum has been carefully developed to align with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), incorporating problem-solving activities, real-life case studies, and collaborations with local organizations. Part of our work has been to convert the SDG Targets into Problem Statements that enable students to focus on problem-solving.
The core of this experiential learning program is to provide students with hands-on experience in addressing sustainable development challenges. By engaging in community-based projects and collaborations with local organizations, students understand sustainability issues deeply and develop the necessary skills to make a tangible difference.
Students learn to be members of a Board with a strategic mission
Student Sustainability Boards is a concept for school communities to embark on an innovative journey to encourage greater sustainability. The Student Sustainability Board program integrates what are normally silos of community stakeholders and brings them together in pursuit of a constructive and real-world solution to develop sustainable operations of a school that delivers value to everyone involved. The students who participate will gain valuable experience in how a Board of Directors functions. Each member of the Student Sustainability Board has a job with responsibilities and accountabilities.

Definition of sustainability, “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” - the United Nations Brundtland Commission 1987
Entrepreneurs Business Design Canvas
A 2-day program that validates business ideas
This program is primarily for senior students who believe they have an idea for a new business. It can also be used for students who are generally interested in becoming entrepreneurs but may not have a specific idea they wish to develop. The 2-day program will benefit students to either confirm that their idea has genuine potential or help them to fail-fast by invalidating their idea and then helping them to decide whether to pivot to a new idea. It can also be used by entrepreneurs to find a team for their project. All 14-hours are facilitated experiential learning using the Minimum Viable Canvas, a tool that will define their business idea and business model.
