Mentor the Leaders of Tomorrow—Be a VIRTUAL Company Advisor
Washington Business Week’s Professional Development Program offers leadership development and mentoring through the Company Advisor Experience. Prominent, high-growth companies have seen first hand the valuable skill sets their employees gained in just one week of collaborative, discovery learning. As an advisor, you will gain valuable management insights, expand your industry knowledge, grow your leadership capacity, and ultimately benefit your company and community in a priceless return on investment by bringing these skills back to your workplace. Serving as a Company Advisor is not only rewarding for mentorship of high school youth, but it is also a great leadership development experience for you as a professional! Encourage your company to send you and pay your way.
At Washington Business Week, high school students learn crucial life skills as they role play as industry professionals, launch a company, and solve real-world challenges, all guided by you—the Company Advisor.
In just four days, Company Advisors learn to coach, influence, delegate, empower, and sharpen leadership skills in a way that our participants describe as life-changing. Guide students to work as a team, run a company, and make real-world decisions. You learn firsthand how to lead a diverse team to success. It’s a hand-on leadership program like no other.
Teachers also have the opportunity of earning clock hours for time spent at the program.
