BIJ seeks to inspire youth entrepreneurship and social enterprise through experiential learning.

While we understand that not everyone wants to be an entrepreneur, we can help to grow and foster not only the entrepreneurial mindset but that of intrapreneurs, dreamers who do, and take the initiative to create innovation within their workplaces, for example. BIJ therefore provides programming that enables youth to develop the mindset and use it to influence and grow their own communities and the economy at large. Through experiential learning we expose youth to non-traditional career paths and give them the opportunities to find their strengths in areas that may not have otherwise been apparent to them.

Experience In

Experiences In strives to introduce African Nova Scotian and racially visible youth to careers where they are underrepresented. The long-term goal of the program is to affect an increase in the participation of ANS in these fields, resulting in a more diverse sector.

Role Models on the Road

This program promotes awareness about entrepreneurship, as we stress the importance of education. Each panelist volunteers their time speaking to youth about their career path, what their work entails, and to offer some words of advice and guidance about the importance of staying in school, setting goals, and entrepreneurship.
