Go on an Add+Venture in your own community!

Choose Your Own Add+Venture is a program for high-school aged youth who aspire to be leaders at all levels and in all walks of life and want to learn the skills to thrive in the ever-changing working world. Our world is changing at a faster pace everyday and WHOA! will equip you with the skills to adapt and get ahead of the curve.

A Venture is a new business. It becomes an Add+Venture when you add your skills, talents, and gifts.

In this 6-week, 90-hour community camp, you will:

Discover - community issues, struggles, and/or needs by connecting with people
Design - brainstorm and innovate ways to address what you discover
Develop - test your designs by putting them in the hands of the people in your community

Choose Your Own Add+Venture

Teams will then pitch their Ventures to a panel of judges who have experience with new businesses and social issues.

The winning team will be paid to:

Deliver - bring your business to life!
