Challenge Enterprise 2024

Help develop the next generation of business leaders

Challenge Enterprise

Challenge Enterprise is a weekend programme organised by Rotary District 1320 and is designed for 16 & 17 year olds in S5 and S6 of secondary education who have the ability and desire to become the next generation of business leaders.  Candidates for Challenge Enterprise require the formal backing of their school/college and are subject to a selection interview by their sponsoring Rotary Club.

What is the Objective of our weekend?

To expose, explore, and spur imagination on the whole subject of business and private enterprise.

In providing the young people with a broad view of professional, business and management careers, the program presents business and management as challenging positions offering enormous personal satisfaction while allowing them to exercise maximum creativity and sets challenges which will help develop their confidence and business knowledge.
