What is CREATE?
The Carolina Regional Entrepreneurial Albright Team Experience or CREATE is a year-long entrepreneurial program for leadership development of high school students in North Carolina and university students at NC State that culminates in a state-wide proposal competition. The program is a collaboration between NC State Entrepreneurship and the Shelton Leadership Center (SLC.)
Professional staff from NC State Entrepreneurship and the Shelton Leadership Center will educate, advise, and mentor NC State students who will provide guiding support to participating high school teams in North Carolina. The culminating state-wide proposal competition will be a large-scale event and invite guests, judges, and speakers of notoriety within the state.
NC State students who want to be program liaisons and mentors to high school students can apply to be a CREATE Mentor.
In order for students to be CREATE mentors, they will need to enroll in the two courses (two credits in the fall and one credit in the spring.) These courses will cover entrepreneurial concepts, leadership theories, team dynamics, and teaching/facilitating strategies.
CREATE Mentors will meet with their assigned high school team to facilitate the curriculum and prepare students for the CREATE competition in the spring.
