Empowering and Impacting the Next Generation
Washington Business Week is a unique opportunity like no other. We place business professionals with high school students in a dynamic workplace simulation for a week during the summer where students role-play as industry professionals, launch a company, and solve real-world challenges.
Backed by over 100 Washington state organizations and businesses, including Microsoft, PEMCO Insurance, and The Boeing Company, we have sent more than 70,000 students and 6,000 business professionals through our programs.
Thousands of students experience the Washington Business Week model, learning teamwork, leadership, and innovation.
- Over 53% of students are low-income
- 40% are young people of color
- 100% of summer participants earn college credit to put them on the path to postsecondary success
In 2019, we served 1,590 high school students and had the support of 200 volunteers.
