In.Business Atlantic Update

Time is flying by since the beginning of my hire back in October of 2016. My name is Nina Kent, the Atlantic Regional Manager of In.Business. Coming into this position, I was swiftly given the task of recruiting 60 students and 10 mentors from the Atlantic region and get things geared up for the Opening Conference taking place November 25-26th, 2016. The Conference was very well attended with representation from 18 high schools, and 20 Indigenous communities from the 4 Atlantic Provinces, click here to learn more…

The month of January is a relatively quiet one as students come back from their holiday break, return to school, and write their final exams. Students are coming up to the halfway point in the In.Business program as challenges 4 and 5 are due in the month of February. To keep students, schools and stakeholders updated, we release a monthly e-newsletter to give a recap of the previous month and also select a “Student of the Month”. View January E-newsletter here…

The In.Business program aims to provide high school students with business challenges to encourage them to graduate high school and pursue business at the post-secondary level. Generally, students also indicate on their initial applications (to In.Business) of their post-secondary plans, and an enrolment service professional will follow up. This year we are taking this a step further by hosting in-community sessions starting with Cape Breton Island.
