This workshop is specially designed to enable our young participants to identify their unique talents and capabilities. Children discover how to make the most of their talents and how to cultivate and grow them to deal with the challenges of our changing world.
Every human’s potential is linked with his or her nature, or what we call, Hero Power. Our Hero Power requires cultivation, growing, ripening and rounding out for it to be truly effective for us. We call this becoming a super hero. The goal of the super hero is to keep growing and the Hero Power program teaches you how!
Hero Power expands upon the meaning of literacy in education to include growth in body, heart and spirit in order for children to have the full spectrum of resources to continue growing successfully throughout their life. We call this “embodied literacy” because it captures the essence of unified learning of body-mind-spirit.
Children are then better equipped to understand people, engage with them and work with them harmoniously whilst remaining true to themselves and their distinctive hero powers.
We then go a step further by showing them how these powers can be used for good to start an amazing business idea or collaborate with others to generate ideas and create momentum.
This workshop is designed to specifically give young minds an entrepreneurial experience of the real world. The program covers concepts like business planning, financial models and how a successful business is taken from conceptualization to fruition. Participants are encouraged to identify businesses that are in line with their true calling whether it be baking cookies or website development. During this program the participants will monetise their business by developing a stall which they will present at the Business Fair where they will be able to sell their products or services.
We take them on a journey, where they:
- identify their unique talents
- grow these talents into innovative enterprising ideas
- transform their ideas into entrepreneurial ventures
- launch their businesses by exhibiting them at a business fair
This journey is collaboration between students and their peers, school teachers, parents, facilitators and local entrepreneurs. Through this process students learn to appreciate their skills and unique talents. The Business Fair conducted at the end of the program works like a true celebration of students’ ideas and a testament to the unique capabilities that exist within every child.
