We encourage young people to explore business through hands-on experiential learning. Students run their own mock companies and develop original product ideas into business plans—with guidance and coaching from real entrepreneurs, executives and educators.

Beyond business, students participate in interactive activities, teambuilding exercises, inspiring seminars and more events designed to inspire professional growth and skills they can leverage for life.
