Micro-Tyco inspires an entrepreneurial environment that fosters creative thinking, resourcefulness and team work as well as helping pupils to develop financial literacy, communication, leadership, project management and networking skills.
Micro-Tyco runs as a stand-alone 4-week challenge or can be incorporated into classes as part of an 8-week Programme of Learning, using interactive resources and lesson plans provided by WildHearts.
By taking part in Micro-Tyco senior pupils can learn how business can be a force for good and gain experience that enhances their personal statement and CV. Students are also provided with the chance to secure work experience with leading employers. Since 2016, nearly 500 Micro-Tyco students have secured work experience placements with top employers across the UK.
Micro-Tyco is free for schools thanks to our corporate sponsors.
In November 2018, at the United Nations in Geneva, we launched the WildHearts Global Youth Ambassador (WGYA) programme. The programme inspires future generations of business leaders to see business excellence and delivering positive social impact as synonymous.
Our Youth Ambassadors are trained to use entrepreneurial thinking to champion Responsible Business and create positive change both locally and globally. We are now proud to showcase the amazing impact the programme has delivered. Watch the video here.
WildHearts is a movement of peers who believe that business can and must be a force for good. The members of the WildHearts Schools National Advisory Board embody this spirit. Each one, through their personal commitment and professional influence, has contributed significantly to WildHearts growth and to the one million lives we have transformed to date.
The WildHearts Schools programme is designed to empower our young people with the Inspiration, Knowledge and Networks they need to fulfil their potential and make a positive impact, now and in the future. Its purpose is to inspire the leaders our world deserves. See our members here.
