Verge Young Entrepreneurs is a curriculum embedded program that is being run across three schools, and involving over 300 Year 9 students. Using Project Based Learning as the vehicle, students work across a term to respond to, “As a social entrepreneur, develop and pitch your innovative solution to close the gap for a marginalised group in society.”
