GECDSB Student Entrepreneurs
​The Greater Essex County District School Board is extremely pleased to endorse students in starting their own businesses. 

Osadayi1.jpgCurrently, we are the only board in Ontario to receive funding from the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure to offer a Student Ventures program. In addition to the experience gained and hopefully profits earned, students earn CO-OP education credits towards their Ontario Secondary Diploma. 
We are excited to announce a second round of funding; students who are interested in participating in this opportunity can obtain information from their High School Guidance Department or can contact Lauren Segedin, Teacher Consultant, via email or at 519-255-3200 ext. 10333. 

Applications for the second round of the program are due March 4, 2016.
