Endurance Project Management (EPM) worked with the Founders and CEO of Noble Impact (NI) to create a high school curriculum that is relevant and purpose-driven.
Initially, EPM completed a landscape analysis of public service and entrepreneurship programs targeted at high school and college students. EPM researched and analyzed 24 different programs and presented NI with a summary of existing challenges, best practices, and identified their programmatic niche.
Next, EPM, authored the Arkansas Department of Education course application and drafted the day-to-day framework for the year-long course. In the fall of 2014, EPM, project managed the pilot of the first quarter of curriculum. Student groups were paired with a local nonprofit or business to completed a brand analysis for the organization. Over 24 organizations participated in this project and gave students direct access to their organization and CEO or Executive Director.
In addition to the creation of the high school curriculum, EPM assisted NI with the implementation of the first ever Startup Weekend for high school students and project managed their summer program, the|Institute.
