Alaska Business Week seeking Anchorage students

Alaska Business Week seeking Anchorage students
Do you have or know of a high school student that would like to attend a business oriented camp and earn college credits? Read on for more information. 
 

What is the Alaska State Chamber's Alaska Business Week program?

 

The Alaska Business Week program is modeled after the very successful and long-running Washington Business Week program, and we work very closely with them to assure all aspects of the program are covered. We have utilized their curriculum, crafting it to make it applicable to Alaska and Alaskan high school students. It has now been incorporated into a college-level program, endorsed by the UAF School of Management as a two-credit elective course. Students must earn these credits by being actively involved in team efforts to run a complex business model, while striving to attain new heights in their leadership capabilities. We have also developed a relationship with UAF and the UA Foundation to provide education tax credits for contributions to this program.

 

Why is this program important?

 

Alaska businesses will need qualified, educated young Alaskans to assume leadership positions in the future. Alaska high school students will some day become our future leaders. This is one way members can take an active role in grooming future leaders of our state. What better way to address this need than to actively participate in this endeavor!

 

Alaska Chamber membership participation is especially important because this program gives students a hands-on experience in running a business - something some of them will aspire to do in their long-term careers. What better way to get them started on this track to groom them for future leadership positions - a very wise investment indeed!

 

We encourage high school students from all over the state to participate - home schooled, private or public schools - they are all encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
