2016 Adventure Capital Pilot Program Kick Off

On Sept. 23 2016 ,  Derrick Brooks Charities in partnership with Adventure Capital , and  Dairy Council of Florida  held the kick off for  an exciting pilot program at Brooks Debartolo Collegiate  High School, where a select group of students will have the opportunity to work closely with a supporting teacher to design their BIG idea on how to solve a health and wellness challenge in their school community. Student groups or individuals will have the opportunity to pitch their solutions to an esteemed group of judges in November, with a chance to win a grant to implement their idea. During the kick off, the students actually began working on their project plans! We are so excited about this program and we look forward to some awesome project ideas!! Stay tuned for program updated!!
