Choose Your Own Add+Venture
WHOA! (We Help One Another) is pleased that you're interested in our 4-D collaborative, leadership and community development program called Choose Your Own Add+Venture (CYOAV). Selected applicants will engage in a collaborative, 4-phase community engagement and social innovation process. The four phases are: Discover, Design, Develop, and Deliver. The 6-week, 90-hour program teaches students how to Discover local community needs, Design innovative solutions, and Develop testable prototypes that fulfill the discovered need. Upon successful completion, students earn school credit and a Youth Leadership Certificate (YLC). Course materials will be organized in Google Classroom.

The YLC portion of CYOAV concludes with a pitch competition, where each student team presents the Design that they Develop according to the community needs they Discover. A panel of entrepreneurs and local community members engaged by the students will judge their pitches and select the best solution. The winning team advances to the final CYOAV phase and will be paid $10/hr to operationalize their business model and Deliver their solution to the community, and further qualifies to earn a Youth Employability Certificate (YEC) in addition to the YLC. Students lead their way through CYOAV with the aid of trained WHOA! facilitators.

Please invest 10-15 minutes of your time to complete the application so we can consider you for our Summer 2019 program! Applicants will need a parent/legal guardian to complete the form with them.
