What is FIRE Within?

FIRE Within is a year long curriculum immersing student in social entrepreneurship, business and leadership development. Classes are taught in a hybrid in-class / online environment, helping to prepare them for post graduate education. Students will use the education to start and run a social enterprise. Each class will choose a social justice issue and create a product or service, which addresses the root cause of their social justice issue.

Students will have an opportunity to compete in several competitions to earn seed funding and notoriety. Once the school year is complete the students will have the option to continue to run their business or sell it.
