Volunteer for The Challenge on May 21, 22 and/or 23

The Challenge

May 21 (Tu), May 22 (W) & May 23 (Th)
9:30 am – 1:00 pm each day
The IDEA Studio, 111 E. Wacker Dr., Suite 222 (Map)
Lunch is included.

In Winter/Spring 2019, 1,000+ CPS middle school students from across the city participated in Future Founders Discover in-school startup bootcamps. Over the course of three days in May, we are inviting 300+ of our most engaged and committed young entrepreneurs to connect with like-minded peers from across the city, network with caring professionals like you, and engage in hands-on business simulations and competitions. Each day will be a new opportunity for the current business leaders in our city to meet future CEOs & Changemakers and share skills, stories, and connections.

We are seeking caring professionals who are interested in sharing both their stories and their skills with our Discover students. The commitment would be from 9:30 am – 1 pm on a date of the volunteer’s choice (May 21, May 22, and/or May 23). The volunteer role will be guided by Future Founders staff from start to finish and includes three parts:

NETWORK: Participate in a high-energy, guided networking activity.
DESIGN: Coach students in small groups as they design a new technology-based business to solve a problem in their lives.
COMPETE: Provide support and guidance as students compete in hands-on entrepreneurial challenges.

We hope that you join us!
