Announcing that the Hillsborough Community College (Business/Entrepreneurship Program and Institute for Continuing and Corporate Education) is one of 16 colleges from throughout the country chosen to facilitate the Verizon Innovative Learning for Girls Program. The 2-year program was launched in partnership with the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE

Beginning June 10, we kickoff our second year with a three-week intensive learning experience. 100 girls from local middle schools across the Plant City Area will attend this very special program, participating in augmented and virtual reality, coding, 3D design, entrepreneurship and design thinking principles free of charge. The students will continue to participate in monthly sessions throughout the academic year where they will develop a technology solution for a community problem that aligns with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Focus areas of the SDGs include poverty reduction, quality education, good health and well-being, climate action, peace and justice or gender equality.

The camp runs June 10—28 between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. We would love to have you participate! You can run an activity, volunteer in a classroom, facilitate a morning or afternoon session on leadership, teambuilding or careers during one of the am/pm sessions or a lunch and learn. We are pulling together our schedule for the 3 weeks, so please let me know if you would like to take part. All are welcomed! (See attached spreadsheet with the days and times that are available.)

We are also looking for:

3 judges to review the girls projects on Friday, June 29

sponsors for Friday pizza days (or other lunch sponsors)

volunteers to serve as hall monitors etc. If you know of any high school students needing volunteer hours!

If you would like to help during the year, here are the dates of the Post Camp activities held on Saturdays from 9 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
