Empower: Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Creativity Summer Programme 2019

Open to Secondary School Students (senior cycle), EMPOWER is a HEA (Higher Education Authority) funded summer programme designed to support the young innovator and entrepreneur and is run in partnership by LIT & Mary Immaculate College in Limerick and Tipperary.

The summer camp programme focuses on helping young people to build a powerful toolkit that, through support, will enable them to build creative, innovative and entrepreneurial skills for life. 

Designed and developed by LIT & Mary Immaculate College together with advisors in business including young entrepreneurs, academia, national and global youth organisations, teachers, investors, incubation and acceleration teams and informed by some of the best models globally. This is our 3rd year running this programme but we have been running entrepreneurship programmes for more than 12 years!

EMPOWER will prepare young students for real world success, building their innovative, creative, design and entrepreneurial skills and mindset through activity based learning!

It will run Monday to Friday from 9:30am to 3:30pm each day. Max 25 students. You must be a current secondary school student. 6th years just finishing this year can also apply.
