General

RE-Novate is an annual entrepreneurial  academy for high school students. Its aim is to facilitate the teaching of entrepreneurship in high schools, to adequately prepare the students for the workforce.

Re-Novate is an offshoot of TRIBE.

RE-Novate will run along with the academic year and will last for a period of 6 months.

There are three schools under the pilot phase of the program. ELWA Academy, B.W Harris Episcopal High School & Paynesville SDA High School

Students enrolled in the program will learn entrepreneurial skills that are essential for the real-world challenges.

All students who successfully complete the program will be certificated. 

No. The program does not guarantee you an internship experience. However,  TRIBE is working with leading social enterprises to provide internships for 20 RE-Novate Fellows. RE-Novate Fellows interested in the internship will be vetted in a rigorous recruitment process to evaluate their skills and interest for possible placements.

Re-Novate prepares students to enter the workforce upon graduation from high school. Not every student will score a chance to enter college. But with the right knowledge, you can launch your way into becoming an entrepreneur or finding a job.

Cost

At the moment, RE-Novate is done in partnership with schools and will not directly charge eligible students any tuition. All activities are being paid for by sponsors, donors and/ or the school’s administration.

The program will provide resources to a certain extent. However resources such as internet data, among others to do research or attend online classes will be incurred by the student.

School Partnership

For the pilot of RE-Novate, TRIBE is working with three  schools in Monrovia and Paynesville.

Our program team conducted a school assessment in 2021 to assess potential schools to pilot RE-Novate. The school assessment evaluated schools’ willingness to participate, flexibility, infrastructure, and willingness to  support the program implementation. Based on the assessment report and partnership review process, three schools agreed to partner with TRIBE. 

15 students will be recruited from each partner school, 5 students per grade-level. 

The partnership between TRIBE and the school lasts for the duration of the academic calendar year.

 RE-Novate is FREE for students in the first year.

RE-Novate has been integrated as an elective with partner schools. Student evaluation in RE-Novate is  non-academic and is meant to test students’ cognitive abilities, socio-emotional skills and character development. 

Facilitators will be recruited and trained by TRIBE. Each partner school will be assigned a facilitator.
