The Hazleton LaunchBox supported by Pasco L. Schiavo, Esq. is offering an engaging, seven-week virtual program designed to teach teenagers the skills and mindset needed to transform ideas into action. Classes are scheduled to begin Tuesday, Oct. 19.
Participants will explore their passions and identify problems in the community, discover personal strengths and limitations, develop business ideas, and learn how to articulate and act on them.
The challenge concludes with a pitch competition, where students present their ideas to a panel of judges. The top prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the student or team that finishes in first place. The student or team that finishes second will earn a $500 prize.
Students and their families and friends are welcome to attend the in-person pitch competition at the LaunchBox on Tuesday, Nov. 30.
