Balancing Education and Enjoyment: We understand the importance of allowing students to enjoy their well-deserved March Break. By offering a part-time schedule, we aim to strike a balance between educational enrichment and leisure. This format ensures that participants have ample time to relax, spend time with family, and engage in other activities during the morning hours.

Flexibility: A part-time schedule allows for greater flexibility, accommodating various commitments and interests that students may have during March Break. It enables them to participate in our program without feeling overwhelmed or stressed.

Engagement: We believe that focused and engaging sessions are essential for effective learning. By keeping the program part-time, we can maintain a high level of engagement, ensuring that participants remain excited and eager to learn throughout the week.

Quality Learning: The condensed 5-day format allows us to deliver high-quality content efficiently. Each day's sessions are carefully planned to cover essential topics and provide hands-on learning experiences, ensuring that students gain valuable entrepreneurial skills and knowledge.
