How To Coordinate The Community On Demand
Entrepreneurship Work-based Learning Experience

About The Entrepreneurship Experience

Level 4. Ultimate Game Play

The Community On Demand Entrepreneurship Work-Based Learning Experience is student-driven and managed.  It provides students the opportunity to unlock Level 4: Ultimate Team Play — the social venture competition.



During the Community On Demand Entrepreneurship Work-Based Learning Experience, the student plans, implements, operates, and assumes financial risks in a business that produces goods or delivers services. The entrepreneurship student owns the business assets and keeps financial records to determine return on investments. Their challenge is to transform their impact solutions and fundraising campaigns into social ventures to demonstrate how they developed the skills necessary to become established in their own business or to gain employment.


JEM Teams present applications of all five Community On Demand achievement domains to the Legacy Council as they convert their Impact Projects and crowdfunding campaigns into the launch of a local, small businesses or social venture.
