Leadership Bootcamp

Does the thought of giving a presentation to a group give you the chills? Are you nervous to even speak to a small group of people when the focus is all on you? Want to build confidence and learn how to communicate without being afraid? In this 2-hour bootcamp, local entrepreneur Frank DiCola will show you how he overcame stage fright and became a confident public speaker. You'll be challenged to leave your comfort zone, play group speaking games, critique each other (constructively) and emerge from the bootcamp with more confidence in our voices.

T.a.l.e

Introduce teens to the business world and inspire those to start/own their own company or endeavor one day. Business plans, market studies, profit/loss, product testing are all examples of topics to cover.  Tour a local business to observe various functions or positions.  Following the tour start your own company by electing a president, vice presidents for various departments, and positions.  Have participants create their own entrepreneurial idea and conduct a contest for the best presented business plan. This model can be used when teaching teens about entrepreneurship, running a corporation, a retail store etc.
