img services entrepreneuriat jeunesse

The CDÉNÉ undertakes various projects and initiatives to support entrepreneurship among youth. We work closely with Université Sainte-Anne and the Conseil scolaire acadien provincial (CSAP) (provincial Acadian school board) to transmit to young people the values of an entrepreneurial culture.

Collaborative Agreement with the CSAP
In 2014, the CDÉNÉ signed a collaborative agreement with the CSAP focussed on a common goal of increasing youth entrepreneurial spirit and entrepreneurship in general. This has led to the organization of a variety of entrepreneurial activities and experiences for students from Grades 4 to 12:

  • Integrating entrepreneurial strategies into the CSAP curriculum.
  • Networking activities where students meet and develop a deeper understanding of local entrepreneurs.
  • Business Pitch competitions, where Université Sainte-Anne and CSAP students have an opportunity to present their entrepreneurial ideas to “Dragons” from the business world, to get advice and to potentially obtain funding for their initiatives.
  • Mentoring young people to support the development of entrepreneurial thought process or mindset.
  • Entrepreneurship boot camps for students from Grades 4 to 6 with the Écoles Plus (Schools Plus) team of the CSAP.
  • Workshops for youth on current topics related to entrepreneurship.
