Options Online is a free online platform where youth can learn lifelong essential skills to help improve their future
Youth can create free accounts, showcasing themselves access learning modules on subject like money management, job search, and interpersonal skills. Modules are gamified so members can earn points, receive certification and compete with their friends and members around the world.
Enactus Saint Mary’s is a student-led organization of 80 active members from a wide range of backgrounds that creates social enterprises based on solving the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
The team runs a myriad of projects varying from simple fundraisers to self-sustaining social enterprises that impact and empowers hundreds of Nova Scotians. Through this, students from all faculties are able to not only apply classroom concepts into the real world but also find a way to monetize their passion.
For the last 11 years, Enactus Saint Mary’s has been helping youth like themselves achieve success through their employability skills training program, Options Youth.
Recognizing the huge impact this project was making with youth in their community, the enactus team created Options Online to further their reach.
I am Interested!
The pilot launch of Options Online will begin September 1, 2019 and run for 3 months. This time will be used to create awareness and work out any kinks in the programing. Following the pilot, we will have up to 20 modules, job board and educator access to buy materials for their classroom.
