Queens University Belfast

Kickstart is a project tackling the school drop-out rates of youth age 13-14 in disadvantaged areas of Belfast. We aim to achieve this goal by increasing student’s interest and aspirations in higher education as well as improving their business knowledge and skills through an interactive 7-week programme. During this programme students work in teams to develop a product/service from start to finish which includes idea generation, financing, marketing and pitch development.

What Global Goals are we working towards?

4 – Quality Education

10 – Reduced Inequalities
