  • PURPOSE
    The purpose of this Memorandum of Agreement is to support The NEXT Steps Youth Entrepreneur Program's interests in launching the Community On Demand STEAM Education & Life Skills Development Card Game as a work-based learning experience ("Pilot Project") to students in your county as a member of the NEXT Steps Partners In Education Network.

    About Our Curriculum

    Community On Demand™ (“The CoD”) is a STEAM education & life skills development card game that helps learners quickly identify up to 63 of their high demand STEAM skills by teaching them how to convert their knowledge, capabilities, interests and achievements into digital credentials, career-building opportunities and social ventures.

    The Money Guide for Young Entrepreneurs© (“The Money Guide”) is the official textbook for The Community On Demand card game. It guides young innovators through the eight steps required to create winning mission statements, develop viable business plans, and build collaborative project management teams with their peers. It also shows them how to create career-building opportunities and launch successful social ventures that ultimately benefit their local community.
