Educators Find Real-World Value
There is a lot of buzz today about 21st century skills, career preparedness, and providing students with learning experiences that link with real-world dynamics. That’s where Washington Business Week fills the gap – a unique teen summer camp that combines the best educators with business professionals in a setting that fosters life-changing results for today’s teens. If this sounds good to you, then consider being a part of our one-week, teen summer program.
The summer program joins you with more than 200 high school students and other educators as you participate in group discussions, workshops, lectures, and one-on-one informal sessions with business volunteers from across the state. Along with your teen cohorts, you’ll attend workshops on topics such as:
- Positive Attitude
How to Get a Job
Supply and Demand
And, as an educator you can earn up to 40 approved clock hours of in-service education through the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Download the Summer Educator Information Flyer and Educator Application here. If you can't attend the whole week, earn 8 clock hours for attending the judging events on Friday.
Washington Business Week collaborates with DECA, FBLA, Gear-Up, College Success Foundation and many other groups. If you are interested in bringing Washington Business Week to your school, be sure to contact us about our in-school, community-based programs.
