CENTRALIA

College-level Challenges in a Community-minded Setting

The Centralia/Chehalis Area Business Week Program will be held December 9th-12th, 2019 and hosted at Centralia College.

Business Week is a landmark experience for the junior class high school students of W.F. West, Centralia, and other Lewis County high schools. Like the summer program, students spend an intensive week in a simulated “corporate” environment learning business, teambuilding, leadership, and life skills.

This program is required for student graduation and teams are composed of a mix of multiple schools, guided by a teacher and a company advisor from the surrounding business community. With a strong rivalry between the schools, it’s a healthy way for the community to come together and for young people to make lasting connections outside of their usual circle.

The local business and educational community of Centralia and Chehalis believes so strongly in the benefits of Business Week for their students that the community fully funds every aspect of the program each year. With exception of lunch, there is no cost for students to participate. Students are transported by bus to Centralia College every morning and back in time to catch their afternoon school buses.

The success of the program depends heavily on the commitment of local volunteers. If you would like to promote success in the lives of future generations in Lewis County please contact Amanda Hubbert at 360.748.6611 or lcbusinessweek@gmail.com. Volunteer opportunities are available for Company Advisors and Judges.

Our group has learned valuable lessons, both leader and students alike! The challenge of working in a diverse group was ultimately met by leaning in to pull together. We learned from our mistake and now better understand the world we may face in our future.
