Become Your Own Boss

Do you have an idea for a product or service that you’re just itching to bring to life? But how do you get started? How do you build a business plan? How do you know what steps to take and where to start? 

We have the answer: our popular 10-week Entrepreneurship Program! In this program, we will walk you through the Lean Stack method of developing an in-depth business idea. Then we will use real-world examples and case studies to illustrate how this method works in practice, and by the end of the program, you’ll have developed a comprehensive business plan that can be used on your resume, portfolio, and more!

In addition to learning how to develop a solid business plan, we’ll also cover some basic marketing techniques, so that when you’re finished with this program—and when it’s time for you to start pitching your ideas—you’ll be able to present them with confidence and clarity.

We’re looking forward to seeing what kind of businesses YOU can build with us! Registration for this program ends on September 6, 2022, and space is limited.

Exploring Your Passion for Graphic Design 

Do you have a passion for art and design? Do you enjoy learning new things? Are you looking for a new way to enhance your portfolio?

If you answered yes to all three of these questions, then our Introduction to Graphic Design is the perfect program for you! In this program, we will explore various design elements like colors, shapes, and images. We will also learn skills to organize and convey information. We will practice strengthening conceptual skills by creating our own personal brand that can be used on your resume or portfolio! You will learn how to create clean, effective products and graphics that can be used in any industry.

This program begins the week of September 12th, 2022. The program is 5 weeks long with one class per week. You’ll need a working laptop or computer for this class. You’ll be able to work on projects at home during your free time as well as during the class time. There will be a final project/portfolio addition at the end of the course where you will present your best designs from the course and present your personal brand.

Not only will this Graphic Design program teach you how to create graphics and products, but it will also help you develop a stronger understanding of who you are as a designer. By taking on projects that have real-world applications outside of school, you’ll be able to see how what you’re learning applies in the real world.

We are excited that you are interested in joining us on this exciting journey! Register today! The program closes for enrollment on September 6, 2022.

Are you ready to create your own website?

The Wix Editor is a free, intuitive tool that allows you to design, build, and publish your own unique responsive website. This introductory program explores the basics of Wix Editor and website design principles. The Wix Editor contains hundreds of stunning, customizable elements that students can experiment with and explore to create their own site.

In this five-week program, students will learn how to:

  • Choose and customize layout styles for their new site
  • Use text formatting options to add images, links, and even dropdown menus
  • Create custom headers and footers for their pages
  • Upload photos directly from their phones or laptops to their sites using the built-in photo editor
  • Link pages together using hyperlinks (both internal links within their own site as well as external links leading outside of it)

This program is offered in two different sessions.  Each session lasts five weeks, so students who complete both sessions will have more than enough time to create a fully functional and responsive personal website using all the tools they’ve learned over the duration of this program!

Session 1 Begins the week of September 12, 2022
