PROJECT ECHO PROGRAMS
Multiple Entrepreneurship Programs, After School Activities, and Clubs for Rising Middle through High School Students
Project ECHO’s programs are designed to keep students engaged, whether you're in a virtual or in-person classroom. Project ECHO’s programs have been created to provide individual students, student clubs, teachers, and schools the opportunity to participate in a business and entrepreneurship program. Activity-based learning engages students through the development of a start-up that’s supported by a robust curriculum, student mentoring, on-line business boot camp events, Entrepreneur Chats and special guest speakers, and a capstone event worthy of including in college applications.
Individual students are invited to join Project ECHO's After School Entrepreneurship Program, or encouraged to start an entrepreneurship club on their campus, and teachers may enroll their class in a variety of school-based programs.
Contact Project ECHO today to learn more about our different programs and find one that's right for your students!
Project ECHO's marquee event is an annual business plan competition where hundreds of teens compete for cash start up funds. This event will return to UCLA Korn Hall when it's safe to do so. Until then, we’re on Zoom!
