How To Get Started In Our Site

This section helps our users get started with our programs. Please take a few moments to read our introductions before jumping into our hundreds of pages of programming. 

The top of each page has the major areas of our site;

Resource Center - provides skills to help kids prepare for business,

Experiences or our Business Encounters provides opportunities to gain business experience.

Background Info - this give you lots of information on who we are and what we are trying to do in our sites.

How To Get Involved - this area invites people to help us further develop and deliver our programming.

We have created our site to allow users to move easily from one topic to another. As you move to a topic you will find additional options on the left side of the page.

We have not developed our site with a step 1-2-3 approach in mind, but rather with an approach of allowing users to explore areas of interest.

Kids

It will take you a few minutes, but it will give you a good idea of what we are trying to do  with our site and how you can start learning about business. This will help you to realize our programming is not about trying to entertain you in a quick and flashy way, but provide you with something that respects your abilities and helps you develop other interests which may lead to a job and career.
