AVCF Graduation and Business Pitch Final
September 19 @ 8:15 am - 3:30 pm
In this final milestone event of The Challenge program, participants have dedicated 32-weeks of their lives to transforming themselves. They have developed soft skills, honed interviewing and self-presentation, established long term goals, and worked in teams with their peers to build a business plan. At this event, 5 teams pitch their businesses to volunteers who vote on the most feasible idea, and each member of the winning team is awarded $300. At this celebratory event, the families and friends of our soon-to-be graduates attend to cheer on their loved ones and celebrate the journey they’ve been on to breakthrough to a better tomorrow.
Expected Volunteer Engagement at Business Pitch Competition: As a volunteer, we ask you to come prepared to be a judge for a Business Pitch Competition. Four to five business ideas will be presented by groups of participants. Judges will be given a score card with which to evaluate each team. Your second hat this day will be one of an honored guest at our graduation ceremony. Volunteers will get the chance to sit next to the families and friends of our soon-to-be graduates, cheering on Breakthrough participants for all their hard-work. Breakthrough will take care of facilitating the day’s activities. Any materials you may need for the day, such as a pen or paper, will also be provided by Breakthrough.
