Since 1981, the Shad Valley program has been helping top students in senior high school find an edge in the competitive, knowledge-based world of tomorrow. It's an experience that combines entrepreneurship with science and technology, and offers academic and work experience to its students. Shads tend to be creative and talented individuals —musicians, inventors, and young businesspeople—with strong leadership skills, the ability to work in a team, and solid academic records. Shads spend the month of July at twelve excellent universities across Canada, where they attend lectures and workshops, and get involved in business courses and projects. Combining their own talents with the skills honed at Shad Valley to tackle real-world challenges.
