The Young Enterprise Course of the Católica Porto Teen Academy aims to promote the approach of students in the third cycle of basic education and secondary to the university environment. Its main objectives are:
- To awake the young people entrepreneurial spirit through contact with businesses and the Católica Porto professors with business experience;
- To sensitise students to the importance of soft skills like teamwork, leadership, trust, effective communication, time management, key dimensions to success in academic life and future employment;
- To raise awareness of a real work environment, by knowing a company, its facilities, its operating methods and the projects developed by the organisation.
- To facilitate young people’s first contact with an excellent institution, familiarise them with the academic environment and give them the opportunity to learn about the experiences that they will live in Católica Porto.
Over a week, students receive a challenge they must analyse and resolve, based on the knowledge acquired in seminars taught by the School professors. The works are then presented to a jury composed of teachers and representatives of companies. The week also involves a field trip to a company and contact moments with academic groups.
For participants who live outside Porto, a housing programme is planned, which includes extra social activities.
