SAGEGLOBAL has created a New Course for teen entrepreneurs. It’s called, “Turning Risk into Success” (TRIS). TRIS is a course consisting of 12 lessons that shows teenagers how to start their own business. This course helps teens create a business based on something they are passionate about. The business can be a commercial enterprise or a social enterprise. The lessons were created by Dr. Curtis L. DeBerg, an award-winning university professor. After taking the course, students are eligible to participate in a SAGE Regional or National Tournament. The course can only be taught by TRIS-Certified Master Teachers.
Schools or after-school organizations can purchase an annual license to implement the course.
Students can purchase individual lessons on this website for only $5 per lesson. Students completing the course will receive a Certificate of Completion from California State University, Chico’s Center for Entrepreneurship.
