Bunker Hill Community College: October 2010 report.
We very much enjoyed sharing our work with you during
the NACCE Conference. Thank you for your
interest and insightful questions.
We are getting ready for GEW, during which we will
again be hosting the Young Entrepreneurs Alliance (YEA) students. This year, we are including students from
Madison Park High School in Boston in addition to Assabet Valley High School
and will be hosting a ‘speed networking’ type event where YEA and Bunker Hill
students will be pitching their business ideas to each other as well as to
business leaders connected with our Community Center for Entrepreneurship and
with Young Entrepreneurs Alliance.
Here is a draft of our events. Please note that there are two events
(highlighted in red) scheduled for high school/community college collaboration.

The CCE’s next ‘big’ venture is that of establishing a
student-run business on campus. With
this in mind we are surveying not only our students, but also area high school
students to establish their interest in such a venture. In order to encourage high school student
participation we will be distributing CCE t-shirts. We will report on the
results of this survey at the end of the month.
BHCC’s collaboration with NFTE went quiet for a while
due to personnel changes at the organization.
However, channels of communication have been opened with the Program
Director at NFTE’s New England Office. She is interested in having BHCC host a
NFTE selling event in conjunction with Chelsea High School.
So another busy month building pathways from high
schools to community college.
We wish everyone a very successful and enjoyable GEW!
