If the fact that more than 50,000 high school students have participated in Washington Business Week doesn’t convince you to attend, then here are a few other reasons:
No idea what you want to do after high school?
If you're unsure as to what you want to do for a career, no problem. In fact, that is one of the best parts of the Washington Business Week teen summer program. It is designed to help you figure out what career paths interest you! Our summer camp and pathways give you the low down on the ins-and-outs of careers in business, healthcare, energy, manufacturing and agriculture. In fact, this is one of the only teen summer camps in Washington that brings in loads of professionals from a wide variety of career fields who are interested in one thing – YOU! Their goal is to help you see how your talents and skills translate into the professional world.
Not interested in a career in business?
If you’re into sports, running a company can be as difficult as bringing together a squad of athletes. If you’re artistic, you’ll have an opportunity to create new products, trade show displays and other marketing materials. If you’re into numbers, there’s business math, spreadsheets and other financial challenges. If you haven’t got a clue, just trust us and hold on for a fun-filled week.
You can’t avoid being involved in the business world. If you use a computer, drive a car, buy candy bars, participate in sports or have a doctor’s appointment, you are engaged in “business stuff.” It’s part of life. It’s also very important that you understand how business works. We promise that Business Week is going to make your life easier because you’re going to be smarter about how the real world works. Remember, business is in everything!
