Become a CHOICE Business Champion! Share your career experience with a high-school student!

Organization: FOUNDATION FOR C.H.O.I.C.E.

A "business champion" is a business professional that works with a mentor-student team as the subject of a meaningful Research a Business project. This consists of just three 30-minute phone calls along with a half-day career shadow. We are interested in showing students what it means to work in your field!

For a nine-week period during the course of the school year, roughly January to March, our mentors and mentees (high school juniors and seniors) have the opportunity to research an existing business. The goals of this project are to uncover students’ particular business aptitudes, provide them with the opportunity to connect with a real-world business and learn how to interview, and teach conflict resolution techniques.

At the completion of the project, students will participate in a career shadow with their business champion, something most underprivileged youth never have the opportunity to do. Here, students can see first-hand what a corporate environment looks like and what a college degree has the potential to offer.

Stronger workforce. Stronger community. Better for business.
You can be part of mentoring students to turn education into endless possibility by supplementing their schoolwork with real-world experience and knowledge.

Together, we can help today’s at-risk students become tomorrow’s workplace stars.
