If you’ve spent time in a country whose native language you don’t speak, you know how painful and embarrassing it can be to be able to communicate only through facial expressions, sign language and a handful of poorly-pronounced phrases. “When I was in France, I went to a beauty salon for a haircut,” recalls Delhi-based homemaker Manju Malhotra. “When I asked them to make my hair “petite” as that was the only word I knew, they cut it so short that I hated myself.” She confesses that being able to speak the right language, even at a basic …

CALDWELL, Idaho — A local high school is planning an event to honor the lives lost on 9/11, but first, they’re raising money for a trip to New York City to learn about 9/11.

Elevate Academy is a career technical education charter school that won a grant to organize a 9/11 remembrance event. CJ Watson, the charter administrator at Elevate says one school from each state wins a couple thousand dollars through the grant.

“The students—our first responder students that are firefighting, EMT and criminal justice, will read the names of 55 victims and before that, they’re actually going to research each of their victims to really understand who they were,” Watson said.

Watson says they realized the students weren’t alive yet when 9/11 happened which is why they’re planning a trip for six seniors to visit New York City, hoping they’ll gain a sense of empathy they can share with the other students at Elevate.

“They’re going to spend one full day over by the freedom towers and they’re going to get some personalized tours and stories and really just kind of understand what happened in that moment, what led up to it and what’s happened since,” Watson said.

Victor Chabolla is one of the students going on the trip. He’s in the construction program at Elevate and said he felt like this trip was a calling.

“I think just being there where everything happened will help me understand better and feel what people feel,” Chabolla said.

Elevate Academy has a gofundme to raise money for food travel and lodging for the trip.

They may be 8,500 miles apart, but students from Madison and Botswana, located in southern Africa, have really been able to get to know each other this summer through These Teens Mean Busine$$ Academy, a partnership between CEOs of Tomorrow and Stepping Stones International.

The program provides opportunities for students to learn about entrepreneurship through resources around Madison. This summer, their virtual partnership, now in its second year, has allowed students opportunities to collaborate and meet students outside of their country and provided them with opportunities to obtain high school and college credits.

“Our program, These Teens Means Busine$$ Academy, is our college-level, social entrepreneurship education course,” said Roxie Hentz, Founding Executive Director of CEOs of Tomorrow Inc. “We offer it every summer. Students sign up and they learn business and entrepreneurship. With it, they earn three Madison College prior learning credits, they earn a digital learning badge and one MMSD (Madison Metropolitan School District) high school credit if they’re a student at MMSD.”

Prior to the pandemic, CEOs of Tomorrow held their sessions at Madison College. Transitioning virtually during the pandemic was challenging, but despite odds, the staff at CEOs of Tomorrow created a virtual learning space where 18 students from the U.S. and Botswana collaborate and learn about entrepreneurship. 

Students from Stepping Stones International, the first program of its kind in Botswana focused exclusively on adolescent and youth development, participate in These Teens Mean Busine$$ with CEOs of Tomorrow students in Madison.

“I value and like the teachers because they answer all my questions and always help me when I’m confused,” said Saanvi Gandhari, a student from CEOs of Tomorrow. “I also value the CEOs of Tomorrow’s These Teens Mean Busine$$ Academy because they teach me so much about business and entrepreneurship. I learned so much from this course and I’m really glad I took it. I’m hoping to use this information from the course soon. I also hope to gain pristine colleges’ attention for my future career. 

During the pandemic, Hentz decided to collaborate with Stepping Stones International for the program to make up for the students’ inability to travel globally over the summer like they typically do. SSI has been operating for 15 years with the vision to empower youth to become leaders and achieve their dreams.  

“Initially, students were not sure about the program and even asked if starting a business at 15 years of age was possible, but after explaining the importance of teaching them about developing a business through CEOs of Tomorrow syllabus, they understood the concept of activation sustainable opportunities at a younger age,” said Talent Kahuni, education coordinator of Stepping Stones International. “They all want to start up something so that they may help with their families’ expenses. We are hoping that our students gain inspiration and know that they do not have to have completed a degree to start thinking of running a business, something that is not so common in Botswana. I hope we are opening them to
