SUMMER 2022 PROGRAM DETAILS

  • This year’s program theme is Entrepreneurship. The program will follow the Module System. 
  • Students are expected to detail what they learned/discovered/researched
  • Additionally, each student is required to show how what they learned across the various subject areas related to existing corporations, nonprofits & social enterprises. As an entrepreneur it is important to learn from the successes and failures of others and use those examples to learn lessons. 
  • Students will be partnered into groups of 5 and each group will work on a final presentation related to the entity they are assigned.

Each year we aim to serve between 25-30 scholars each with a cash stipend. Our goal for this year’s program participants is to provide these future job creators and job seekers with a vigorous professional curriculum over the course of 5 weeks. These young residents will be given valuable lessons in entrepreneurship, marketing, general interview prep, resume writing and networking opportunities with current business owners and professionals. By collaborating with existing local businesses, program attendees will receive tangible insight on business startup, management and expansion.
