Additional Information:

This year, the IUP Excellence in Entrepreneurial Leadership Center (ExcEL Center), in conjunction with Junior Achievement of Western PA, will be holding the first ever Entrepreneur-in-Training Camp available to Indiana County high school students.

This one-week commuter camp is being offered to incoming high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, and even graduating seniors. A commuter camp, the Entrepreneur-in-Training Camp will expose aspiring future business leaders to a variety of business concepts such as leadership, business planning, and financial management, while also teaching them to “think outside the box.” Students who participate in the Entrepreneur-in-Training Camp will have the opportunity to hear from successful entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and other business professionals, while they compete in groups for various prizes, including cash. The camp lasts from 9:00 to 3:30 from June 22 until June 26.

I encourage you to recommend this camp to any high school student you believe would benefit from this experience. It is a wonderful opportunity for any student who is interested in business. For our inaugural year, we are fortunate enough to offer this day camp free of charge to any student that is accepted into the program.

Thank you in advance for recommending the Entrepreneur-in-Training Camp to students. We are certain that they will appreciate the opportunity to get a unique look into the business world.
