Innovation. Development. Entrepreneurship. Action. 




The IDEA Centre is a co-op style program designed to develop student-led businesses in the Anglophone South School District ASD-S in Saint John, New Brunswick. 


​Students from various schools gather for 2 periods each day during the school year in a dynamic, supportive workspace in uptown Saint John to develop and grow their business and social enterprises. They receive mentorship and expertise from entrepreneurs, social innovators and community builders while receiving school credits for their work. ​


The program’s success has largely been due to the support from strong community organizations such as Economic Development Greater Saint John, ConnexionWorks, Brilliant Labs, the Social Enterprise Hub, Junior Achievement, Toastmasters, the Teen Resource Centre and many, many others.
