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 provides an invigorating environment for students to learn about starting-up through a variety of innovative programs that combine entrepreneurship and business fundamentals, mentoring, college field trips, and activity-based learning. It’s successful because of our collaborative approach to working with schools, school clubs, and after-school programs. Contact Project ECHO today to learn more about our different programs and find one that's right for your students!
