Maker 2 Market Taster Experience
For Neurodiverse Teens
An intensive two-day business taster program for neurodiverse teens (12-17 years old) that sees them create a micro-business, logo, hand-made products and test their products at a real-world market.
Is your neurodiverse teen full of good ideas,
but tired of being a square peg in a round hole?
Our Makers to Market Experience may be just what you are looking for.
Neurodiverse young people are born problem solvers and it is often their creativity and out-of-the-box thinking that sets them apart.
A creative problem solver is also the definition of an Entrepreneur and a life of entrepreneurship may be a perfect fit!
If you would like an opportunity to develop real-world skills in a safe environment we encourage you to join the Makers to Market Taster Experience this April.
The Maker2Market Business Taster program by edii has helped over 400 teenage students develop their hobby into a micro business through real world learning. This April, for the first time, Canberra local Patricia Falcetta of Social Living Solutions has teamed up with edii to run a pilot Maker2Market program specifically for neurodiverse 12-17 year olds.
