"Invest in Me" is an innovative partnership between Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria and Startup Skool, a social enterprise that educates students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 on Ethical Entrepreneurship, Financial Literacy, and Philanthropy.
Our work with Startup Skool is to spark innovation in students by providing a hands-on learning experience directly in the classroom. Through a blended learning platform, Startup Skool delivers a 4-week curriculum while Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria provides a $100 micro-loan to each classroom through a grant generously funded by Boston Pizza. From here, classrooms have the opportunity to launch and operate their own small business while creating an impact in our community.
Each class has a benchmark of raising $500 through their small business, and the proceeds generated will then support Big Brothers Big SIsters of Victoria Mentoring Programs. As we connect more classrooms with "Invest in Me," more money will be raised by these young entrepreneurs in the program, allowing Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria to serve more vulnerable children and families in need.
