    FREE business "Boot Camp" for students

    Educators, please include this notice in your student announcements, newsletters for parents and other community outreach! 

    The LearnDoEarn Business Simulation Boot Camp & Workshopitition is an engaging educational experience for high school students that combines a series of instructional and motivational workshops with the excitement of competition. Students will gain a more complete understanding of the business world, and their potential role in it, through interactive presentations, exercises, and games. Students will assume the role of employers in launching a business that will design, manufacture, market, and sell a product; and they will make hiring and budgeting decisions. Participants will work in teams; their work product and performance will be judged by a panel of business people. Through these and other activities, students will discover, define, and commit to acquiring the academic knowledge, skills, and behaviors necessary to achieve success in the demanding and competitive worlds of college and work.

    Thanks to a grant from the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development, the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce Foundation will be conducting FREE four-day workshops this July in the following counties: Bergen, Burlington, Cumberland, and Passaic.
