International Company Advisors

8 days (not including travel)

In-School Company Advisors

4–5 days

These community-focused day programs include the best components of the summer program in a short period of time at select rural Washington locations. Students attend our in-school programs as part of their graduation requirement.


The fee is $550 ($250 for retirees/teachers), which includes professional development, activities and most meals. By paying this fee, you are helping offset cost for students. Teachers also have the ability to earn clock hours for attending the program.

Because of the value of Washington Business Week advising, many companies cover the costs of their employees to participate.

Ideally, a Company Advisor candidate:

Possesses a sincere desire to mentor young adults and ignite their potential.
