Volunteer: Business Coaches, Guest Speakers, Judges
Project ECHO relies on hundreds of volunteers each year to support our young entrepreneurs with their business journeys. Business Coaches mentor teams as they ideate, research and prepare to pitch their start-up at the Business Plan Competition. Guest Speakers share their start-up journey or industry expertise with our teens at an event, on a panel, or in an interview. Competition Judges evaluate business plans and presentations at our annual High School Entrepreneurs’ Business Plan.
Team up with Project ECHO and sponsor a classroom, a school or an event. Funds are put to immediate use to enroll students, recruit and train mentors, develop new curriculums and classroom-based materials, and produce events.
Sponsorships benefits are truly personalized to meet the promotional interests of our supporters. Submit the inquiry form below and an ECHO representative will follow up shortly.
