As it has done every year since 2012, BGL BNP Paribas’s lux future lab is offering a group of around 30 young people the opportunity to attend its Summer School, encouraging them to think outside the box by combining two essential factors: entrepreneurial spirit and the pursuit of excellence.
The Summer School is an integral part of the lux future lab, the aim of which is to drive the country’s economic and social dynamics by promoting training and entrepreneurship.
The sixth annual Summer School will be held from 17 to 28 July 2017. It targets high school students who are one or two years away from taking their final exams.
Over two weeks, students will meet innovative entrepreneurs, representatives of charitable organisations and enthusiastic craftspeople, all of whom are professionals with a flair for originality and a real passion for what they do.
The goal is to encourage students to seize control of their destiny at a defining moment in their lives by offering them new opportunities and spreading this message: “Love what you do, and do it well!”
In addition to the various themes covered (each day will be centred around a different topic), leisure activities will be organised to encourage integration and teamwork. Good-to-know sessions will also be held by BNP Paribas Group employees, covering practical issues such as public speaking, self-defence and writing a CV.
Designed in collaboration with some 50 people from the business and academic worlds, the programme also provides one-on-one support from a careers advisor, who helps students identify their interests and skills so that they have a clearer idea of their future education and work options.
The 6th Summer School is again being organised with the support of Luxembourg’s National Youth Service (SNJ), under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, Childhood and Youth.
Students can register for Summer School 2017 online until 14 May 2017, on the lux future lab website, which also provides details on enrolment, terms and conditions.
