Looking to inspire, empower and motivate creative, curious, and brave students? AdCap does just that!
Student entrepreneurs (ages 13-17) who want to make changes in their schools and community’s health and wellness can use AdCap’s unique social entrepreneurship digital platform to design projects, share ideas, meet mentors, and apply for funding to support their big ideas.
AdCap is a student driven program, so your role as an educator is to support and provide guidance along their path. Below we’ve provided resources to help you do so.
We've put together a toolkit specific to educators that provides you with the information you need to inform, encourage, and navigate the AdCap path.
Explore the resources below, download and use in your classroom or share with a colleague.

AdCap is a really positive program…It has been an opportunity [for me] to guide students outside of academics…AdCap gives them a voice and an opportunity to see an idea through to fruition.
