Project Highlight

Nicaragua | National Business Competition 2016

Devin / Nica 65 / EEP
Volunteer from New Jersey

The gist: Beginning in the September of their eleventh year, [Nicaraguan] students are given opportunities to present their business plans and products to judges at the local, municipal, and regional levels, before culminating in a national entrepreneurship competition. This experience not only allows them to refine their business plans and practice their communication skills, but also generates energy and interest around engaged learning while expanding students’€™ horizons by providing them with experiences and relationships that would otherwise not be possible…This year, the theme of the National Congress translates to “€˜Building a Better Tomorrow”€™ which reflects an emphasis on the pro-social components of the eleventh grade Technical and Vocational Orientation (OTV) curriculum.  (Read more)

The goal: $13,355.68

The PCV: “The business plan competition is essentially the culmination of the largest portion of our work as Entrepreneurship Education volunteers in Nicaragua. In it, students have the opportunity to share the products and business plans that they have worked hard throughout the year to bring to fruition. As volunteers, it’s an especially rewarding experience because we can see first hand the concentrated amount of hard work and creativity exercised in the student projects, with the expectation that the students will be better prepared for their prospective futures.”
