Third Tuesday of Every Month At Noon

Featured Speaker: Aaron Sitze "Social Entrepreneurship at OHS"

The Social Entrepreneurship Program at OHS seeks to advance the district mission by combining three distinct elements into a transformative educational experience: 1) the natural creativity of students, 2) the foundational and theoretical knowledge of entrepreneurship, and 3) the deep well of resources in the local community.  As well as gaining credits for both Consumer Education and English, senior students will spend a year putting their individual ideas into practice for the public good – either by working in the community to solve a problem or by creating a start-up business with a social benefit. 


Students will develop skills in professionalism, collaboration, creative and divergent thinking, independence, and self-confidence. 


The larger goal is to connect students to the community, to help them realize that their own ideas can have an impact, and that the best niche for their entrepreneurial vision is not in New York City or Silicon Valley, but right here at home – a place they already know, a place they can help grow.
