A typical day of the Ruckus Entrepreneurs program starts by gathering as a group and discussing what we’ll be doing for the week. The day usually begins with some conversing between interns before our project is shared. Whether it is a presentation or product making we have captains to help lead the groups along the way. As a captain it is your role to facilitate the group and provide assistance when needed.
If the day is about making products, whether it’s lip balms, deodorant, shea balms, or soaps, we make sure everyone understands the process of making the batch . As a group, once we have everyone assigned a role, we begin our process of product making. About half way through our process we take a break where we can communicate with staff or the other group. After this we finish off the product making and prepare for the rest of the week.
If instead we are starting a presentation or another project, we will first get into groups and get ready for the week. For projects, we usually have four or five groups of 3–4 interns. If our project relates to making charts based on past sales then we each get a role, such as researcher, organizer, speaker, captain. As a group we present at the end of the week and share our findings to the other groups and staff.
As a learning organization, Concordia Place is committed to continued improvement. We have learned that distinguishing between the Concordia Place and Concordia Day brands was not necessary.
