Company Program

Company Program is a safe space for youth to learn in a real-world setting.

Through the process of starting and operating a small business, youth have the chance to express their interests and goals in a growth-oriented setting. Whether your interest is in design, science, math, skilled trades or entrepreneurship, Company Program will facilitate your growth. Our programming is also in line with UN’s 18 Sustainable Development Goals, preparing students to leave Company Program and participate sustainably in a global economy.

Company Program’s diverse roles offer space for every student to grow within their interests, from design, to sales, and anything they choose in between.

“Company program for me was definitely more than just learning about work readiness, financial literacy & building entrepreneurial skills. It was an exposure to working in an environment that helped build and improve strong intrapersonal, self-management, communication and teamwork skills which I myself and other students can implement in any field we wish to flourish in. ”
