Leadership Network: Entrepreneurs in Action

This is an opportunity for up to three Leadership Network members to give back and grow their coaching and mentoring skills.

For eight years, the Foundation has been mentoring a team of high-school aged students at the Young Enterprise Trust event — Entrepreneurs in Action.

We are looking for New Zealand-based members to mentor a team at this year’s event, taking place from 5 to 7 July in Wellington.

If you are based outside of Wellington, flights and accommodation will be covered by the Foundation.

About the opportunity

Young Enterprise Trust provides a range of enterprise and financial literacy resources to New Zealand schools, with the aim of developing students with an enterprising attitude.

The YET Enterprise in Action event is a national event for 78 students. Held over two days, 10 teams are given two 24-hour business challenges. Each team is mentored by a company or organisation.

Check out the website articles below to see what our past LN mentors and students had to say about the event.

Some feedback from previous years:

I am so glad I said yes to being a mentor for EIA 2022. Overall, the three days left me feeling invigorated, motivated, and hopeful for our next generation of leaders.  – Hannah Duder

Being able to give back to the network through "paying it forward" (Oh, alright, we still snagged bragging rights given our team's win over the weekend!) was something which enticed me to join as a mentor for EIA 2022Anna Zam

I am impressed and inspired once again by our young leaders. It is amazing to see such a high calibre of students that are also so willing to learn, not only from the mentors but also from each other Celeste Peh
