Penn State Berks students in the Entrepreneurship Club and Entrepreneurship and Innovation minor will hold a workshop for Reading School District high school students enrolled in the Penn State Educational Partnership Program (PEPP). The PEPP students will learn about entrepreneurship, self-assessment, 3D printing, and writing a business plan. The workshop will begin by focusing on what it means to be an entrepreneur. The PEPP students will learn how to become innovative thinkers, and through the self-assessment portion of the workshop, the students will learn about themselves, their passions, networking, and generating new ideas. Finally, they will be taught the basics of writing a business plan and how to incorporate their plan with the needs of their community. PEPP is an early-intervention collaboration between Penn State Berks and the Reading School District. The mission of the program is to enhance academic preparedness and motivation levels in its Reading School District participants to pursue higher education. PEPP also recruits and trains students from Penn State Berks, most of whom are Childhood and Early Adolescent Education majors, to act as PEPP Learning Assistants.
