Sustainable community concept


What is a Passion Project?

A passion project is not defined by the parent or instructor. It is your opportunity to control your education and learn through something you are passionate about.

A passion project should excite and motivate you. You could decide to establish a business or Nor For Profit organization, write a blog or book, start a community initiative, undertake independent research, or invent something.

How do I get started?

  • Sign up for our passion project mentorship program
  • Meet with mentor(s) on a weekly basis who will help you make connections and set up your proposal.
  • Continue working on the steps of your proposal through fruition.

How do I choose a passion project?
