Experience Details

What makes Pennsylvania Business Week unique is the partnering of business mentors and teachers to assist students in running their companies right in the classroom. Financial sponsorship and volunteer participation is needed to successfully bring this program back to Girard High School for the first time since 2006!

Students and educators will learn about America’s economic system and how they play a part in it. They will gain an understanding of how a business operates; gain appreciation for school subjects and how they relate to the real world; develop leadership, team work, time management, problem solving and people skills; and are exposed to a variety of career fields. The participation of volunteer business executives brings actual experience and examples of successful organizations right here in Erie County! Business Advisors play a key role in the PA Business Week program. They serve as mentor, coach and friend, guiding students through the week-long program. They assist students in making business decisions based on math, information, and logic.
