Youth About Business


program overview

The Basic Summer Business Camp is the entry point into the year-round Youth About Business Leadership Development Program. High school students from 9th through 12th grades gain a contextual understanding of business by participating in actual merger and acquisition transaction simulations. Our program exposes students to business in a fun, competitive environment and adds relevance to their education by helping them understand why academic preparation is important.

In our first year "Basic Camp," students attend a one-week overnight camp on a university campus. Youth spend the week engaged in Mergers and Acquisitions transaction simulations, working in teams of seven. During the week, the student teams assume the leadership of their assigned corporation by acting as the executive management committee and begin their due diligence by researching their company's Annual Report.
