Volunteering to change a life – it doesn’t get any better than that!
We are passionate about bringing together teens, educators, and business professionals from across the state to translate textbook theories into real-world experience. Over the past 35 years, more than 6,000 people just like you have participated in the Washington Business Week Program’s summer teen camp, or the in-school community program.

Washington Business Week is a week-long learning experience designed to provide high school students real-world experiences in careers covering business, healthcare, energy, manufacturing and agriculture. As teens learn about our free enterprise system, they’re also learning what it takes to move from the classroom to the boardroom. Your involvement is critical to our ability to fulfill our mission.
***A Note to Potential Company Advisors***
Please remember that your company may coordinate their overall Business Week volunteer participation. All employees from the companies listed below still require additional coordination with company program coordinators to be able to participate as CA's. WBW does not want to give the impression that specific people from an organization have a guaranteed volunteer spot for this summer.
