  • PURPOSE The purpose of this Application is to support The NEXT Steps Youth Entrepreneur Program's interests in launching the Community On Demand Card Game Curriculum ("Pilot Project") as a flexible, blended-learning employment solution that helps learners in your school district (or county) quickly identify up to 63 of their high-demand employability skills. About Our Curriculum

    The Community On Demand (CoD) Card Game Curriculum is comprised of:
    • CoD Card Deck is an innovative 72-pc pocket-size deck of cards that use five color-coded achievement domains to help learners quickly define, measure, build and name their high-demand employability skills.
    • CoD Game Board is a reusable 18" x 24" dry-erase project-based skill mapping tool. The Community On Demand game board makes team-building fun as it provides an extended use of the Community On Demand card game.  With the game board, learners are able to visually assess the employability skills they have, need and use to successfully complete any project.
    • CoD Skills Self-Assessment Worksheets are designed to help learners use the Community On Demand card deck to track the growth of their employability skills based on how they used them to successfully complete any project.
    • Money Guide for Young Entrepreneurs Activity Workbook is the official textbook for the Community On Demand card game curriculum.  It provides eight easy lessons to help young innovators assess their STEAM skills, build project teams, create career-building opportunities, and launch new social ventures.
    • Money Guide for Young Entrepreneurs Online Course (Curriculum Series) - is the online course series that provides in-depth digital visuals, audio tracks, and activity worksheets and provides a more robust team play experience.
    Training Operations
    • Junior Executive Management (JEM) Teams are pre-apprenticeship and work-based learning experiences to help learners use their employability skills to solve real-world problems.
    • Training sessions are recommended to last between :45-  90 minutes per classroom training session and last up to 12 weeks..
    • Students will be expected to exercise the skills learned within the classroom using the Community On Demand curriculum to develop impact solutions that address up to six socio-economic conditions that may be negatively impacting their community.
