 Leander ISD Leading to a Bright Future | INCubatoredu@VHS

 

Leander ISD is excited to launch INCubatoredu at Vandegrift High School in the 2018-2019 school year! This program is an authentic entrepreneurship experience that allows students to connect directly to community and industry in real world project-based learning settings to create and fully develop their own product or service.

 

Entrepreneurs and business experts will serve as volunteer coaches and mentors guiding student teams through the many facets of starting a business. Students will have the chance to  pitch their business concepts in hopes of receiving funds to assist their business ventures with the end goal of advancing to the second year of the program, ACCELeratoredu.


LISD is currently in the process of identifying volunteers who will serve to support INCubatoredu at Vandegrift High School. These people should have a passion for entrepreneurship or business as well as a desire and ability to give back to education with their time and efforts for this program. We are looking for: 


  • Community Champion(s) will serve as a liaison between the school and business communities. Lead efforts to recruit, identify, and connect volunteers using resources provided or by innovating

  • Funding Champion will lead efforts in seeking and securing funds to support student business ventures and goals.

  • Coaches who will lend subject matter expertise to teach specific portions of the curriculum in the classroom for a total of 1-3 days during the year.

  • Mentors who will meet/communicate weekly with student teams to offer strategic guidance and wisdom during the entrepreneurship process.

If you are interested in any of the above volunteer roles, please fill out this form so we can contact you to further explore this possibility.
