Empowering youth-led innovation!
Note to Banker: Week 1 Lesson 1 of the Car and Driver 101 program must be completed to participate in the OGC Formula Prix: ITI Edition (youth mentorship programs)
Banker Instructions: The role of the banker will be played by the lead facilitator. The banker will assign each player to one of the following teams: Creators, Philosophers, Heroes, or Tradesmen. Encourage the players to come together in groups based on their assigned passions and interests. To kickstart their journey, distribute an opening cash balance of $10 to each player who has successfully completed Lesson 1. Additionally, if any players possess a Semper Fidelis Leadership Card, they may redeem it for an extra $25 in cash. Motivate the participants to strive for excellence and embrace their team assignments.
Note to Players: At the beginning of each classroom session, players will receive a cash payout for each lesson completed in the Car and Driver 101 program. Teams must deposit all earnings into the team’s bank account by the end of the 3-hour session. This will allow teams to earn compound interest on their bank account balance. Please remember that you are not allowed to take any cash outside of OGC facilities.
