Experience Details

Drawing upon the success of the past five years, Edinboro University will once again invite young men and women from high schools in Pennsylvania and across the U.S. to campus to introduce them to the field of business as part of the Xavier and Tina Williams Summer Youth Business Academy. The Academy, which is hosted by EU's School of Business, will be held June 10-14 on Edinboro's main campus and is open to all students entering grades 9, 10 or 11. Through the generosity of the Academy's namesake benefactors, AT&T executive and EU alumnus Xavier Williams, '89, and his wife, Tina, scholarship will be available to cover the cost for each participant (valued at $895).

Academy students gain business acumen through immersive seminars focused on team building, business strategy, management, finance, marketing, problem-solving and financial planning for college. Throughout the program, students will have access to faculty from EU's School of Business as well as local business leaders.

During the camp, students will work in groups to create a product or service that solves a common problem in society. Each team will then devise a plan for building and marketing their product or service. At the conclusion of the Academy, a panel of judges comprised of EU faculty and regional business leaders will select a winner.
