It’s time for our U360 Class of 2021 to share what they’ve learned about sustainability and small business!
The virtual U360 Capstone Competition is the culmination of Manomet’s U360 Business Sustainability internship, an experiential educational program for college students. By giving the next generation practical sustainability knowledge coupled with professional and interpersonal skills, Manomet’s U360 program helps these individuals gain agency over their futures and become active and effective change-makers.
At the U360 Capstone Competition, taking place on Tuesday, May 25, three of the top U360 student interns from this school year (selected as finalists during a preliminary judging round) will present their Sustainability Action Plan for one small business that is composed of highly-researched, customized and practical recommendations for how the business could increase its overall sustainability. A panel of judges will ask the students questions in defense of their action plans, and then select a winner. The winner will be named Manomet’s “Next Generation Scholar” for 2021 and receive a scholarship award.
