The LEO Program, a new entrepreneurship, leadership and business curriculum, will be offered for the 2017-2018 school year to highly motivated students who apply and are accepted to the program.
Leadership, entrepreneurship and business courses will be offered, augmented by guest speakers from the corporate, public and non-profit sectors.
Don Bosco Prep Teacher and Program Director for The LEO Program Mr. John Esposito described the new business curriculum, “The LEO Program will combine entrepreneurship lessons with an experiential approach to traditional business subjects. Classroom teachers, coaches, and mentors will prepare students to create and develop their own product or service.”
Funding for the start and maintenance of The LEO Program, which stands for leadership, entrepreneurship and opportunity, has been generously provided by The Leonidas Foundation, which will provide ongoing support of the business curriculum at Don Bosco Prep.
The Leonidas Foundation was founded in honor of Leonidas Vagias and Sam Cali, both 2015 graduates of Don Bosco Prep, who lost their lives in an accident last summer.
