The Catapult program

Catapult program logo

Catapult is a fun, hands-on program giving young people aged 12 to 18 the chance to learn skills that will help them succeed in business and in life.

Offered at a number of partner schools across Logan, the Council-led program gives students access to business and community mentors and real-world challenges, through partnerships with the business, education and community sectors. We want the City of Logan’s young people to think big about their future and that of the city!  Nurturing a generation of confident, creative entrepreneurs will help in creating long-term economic prosperity in our region. 

Skills developed during Catapult include: 

  • problem solving 
  • critical thinking 
  • collaboration
  • communication.

Catapult also aligns with the Queensland curriculum.

Who is involved?

Partnerships with businesses and community leaders in Logan are crucial to amplifying Catapult’s impact, to provide mentorship and demonstrate success at a local level. We’re lucky to have great partnerships with a number of successful business and community leaders who are committed to Catapult and to working with young people, amplifying their skills and broadening their view of their future pathways.

How it works

Students collaboratively develop, validate and pitch their own business ideas, learning new skills and receiving input and advice from local entrepreneurs and experts along the way.

Teachers also receive specialist training to support their students over the long-term.
