In 2017, a grade 6/7 class in Surrey, British Columbia participated in the 6-week PowerPlay Young Entrepreneurs program. The students were challenged to create their own businesses and were responsible for making their own decisions.
The film Mindset Matters documents their journey as their class moves through the program. Placing special focus on four students, Josh, Emma, Abel and Muhamet, each of whom have unique social and educational needs, Mindset Matters highlights the depth of personal and academic growth students experience with this exciting real-world project.
Following the screening, students from the PowerPlay Young Entrepreneurs program will pitch their business to the audience for a chance to win money for their charity of choice!
