2021 EY Connect Day: Queens Preparatory Academy
NFTE's World Series of Innovation invites young people to get involved in solving the biggest challenges facing humanity today and help advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Innovation Days are community events that pair students and volunteers in a day of learning, preparing student teams to participate in World Series of Innovation.
As a volunteer, you will coach a group of students in virtual breakout rooms and help them brainstorm and understand their customer and develop their innovation solution to the specific EY challenge. You will help facilitate a small group of students as they build their creative confidence and business development skills through the Design Thinking process.
