RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- In support of November’s National Entrepreneurship Month, Stride, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of online and blended education programs, is excited to provide students nationwide with new tools and events to help improve their job and business skills, all while still in high school.
“High school students have changed what it means to be an entrepreneur. Our internal research shows that Gen Zers care about impact over profit. They want to make a difference and learn transferable skills that will help prepare for the future - and they want to do it their way. We’re providing the tools to sharpen their skills, fuel their fire, and prepare them for the future,” said Lutz Braum, Vice President of Product Marketing and Innovation at Stride.
After the successful summer launch of its new Entrepreneurship Resource Center for High School Students and Gen Z Entrepreneurship Guide, Stride, Inc. will support National Entrepreneurship Month by providing all high school students nationwide access to resources - no matter where they are at in their entrepreneurial journey – including tips and inspiration from other high school student entrepreneurs on what they’ve learned so far, and a national live event on November 18th titled Boss Yourself: A Teenager's Guide to Entrepreneurship.
Additionally, students can take part in the Tallo Student Community on Entrepreneurship where they can share ideas, post questions, and learn from their experiences together. Several Stride-powered schools can also attend in-classrooms sessions from special guest speakers on how to make money using their phone and making their entrepreneurial dreams a reality.
Stride’s High School Student Entrepreneur Resource Center is packed with tips on starting or growing a business in high school, answers to frequently asked questions, business success stories and inspiration from other teens, and links to tools from agencies like the Small Business Administration that students can immediately apply no matter where they are at in their entrepreneurial journey.
Students at Stride Career Prep schools and programs can pair a solid academic foundation with engaging enrichment activities, access to career and college prep resources, and hands-on learning experiences in growing career fields like Business, Health Sciences, and IT. Whether their path leads them directly into the workplace or to higher education, Stride Career Prep provides students with the skills they need to get there. Eligible students can also earn college credits while still in high school, gaining a head start on higher education and potentially saving thousands of dollars in college tuition costs.
