Recently I was pointed towards a preview for a documentary, The Millennial Dream. I remember watching this last Spring and was excited to see so many people within the province that are interested in retaining and recruiting millennials to this province. Everything rang true, the need for companies to put an emphasis on triple bottom line, that our small population allows us the agility to pivot, and that our local businesses are the key to solving our systemic social problems through an entrepreneurial mindset and approach.
In my new role, as CHAT’s Entrepreneurship Mentor we have made Social Entrepreneurship a main pillar of our programming, and have found the reactions of the students in the classroom really encouraging. As someone who has taught for almost a decade, I can honestly say, the engagement I have seen around this content has been inspiring. This generation truly does care about more than a paycheque.
