The CEO program of Jackson County is now accepting applications for students who are interested in participating in next year’s CEO (Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities) program.
CEO connects students to community leaders through business visits and guest speaking opportunities, but more importantly challenges them to become great communicators and networkers, problem solvers, and creative thinkers. The discovery learning environment has two culminating experiences for program participants: a team-built class business and a trade show which showcases the individually designed business. The success of CEO is reflected in the development of essential skills and an expansive, long-lasting network of community members and business owners.
You have free articles remaining.
For students interested in participating, the deadline to apply is March 6. Visit www.JacksonCEO.org to apply using the digital application link at the top of the page.
