Experience Details

Pennsylvania Business Week is an economic education program of the Americans for the Competitive Enterprise System (ACES). It is a one-week in-school program with a challenging curriculum that teaches students about the American economic system. The students are divided into management teams that “run” their own company for the equivalent of 12 business quarters.

The business advisor plays a key role by interacting with and guiding a student company throughout the week. The business advisor is a volunteer who is willing and able to spend Monday through Friday from approximately 8:00 am until 3:15 pm (the entire school day) with a group of 16-18 students in the 11th grade.

Business advisors are partnered with a teacher in the classroom and together they guide the students through the week.

Experience Requirements

Business advisors should either be currently involved in business in some aspect or retired from business. The students will directly benefit from the real world business experiences that business advisors can provide and will share. Volunteers experienced in Accounting, Marketing or Sales are needed.

These advisors will be required to attend a training session that will provide the business advisor with the information that they will need to know during the program. This training session is held the Friday before the program (Jan. 23rd, 2015, 9:00 am to 2:30 pm), at the school.
