Students who are part of the Paul Martin Aboriginal Initiative at St. Charles College were given a task first semester – develop a business by finding a niche in the market. Second semester, they massaged the plan by creating a sound business plan.
The teachers of the program, Paola Gutscher and Jason Michelutti mentored the students and provided them with educational outings tailored to their plan.
The outcome was tremendous – fish hatchery business, a T-Comics (Tribal Comics) company, a business that caters to seniors to assist with cooking and lawn care and the list goes on.
The program is geared towards Aboriginal students interested in business and will run again next year.
As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting our Sudbury Catholic parents, the SCDSB would like to provide a link to the latest newsletter from The Ontario Association of Parents in Catholic Education (OAPCE).
This month’s newsletter comes in three parts:
June 2015 Part 1
June 2015 Part 2
June 2015 Part 3
In support of World no Tobacco day, which is May 30th, youth advocates from St. Charles College showed their support for the recent passing of bill 45 in the Ontario Legislature. The students wanted to raise awareness of the bill, which has the goal of enhancing public health by putting restrictions on flavoured tobacco, e-cigarettes, and on tobacco in public spaces. The SCC students created a sign along the Falconbridge highway to raise awareness of the passing of the bill. Please share #thx4bill45 if you would like to see a smoke free Ontario, and an Ontario where no youth feels the need to inappropriately use tobacco products.
