YAB students learn to be leaders all year long.
The Leadership Development program covers many areas of business and key leadership knowledge necessary for helping students succeed.
Leadership Development Series
The Business Economy of America is the entry point into the year-round Youth About Business Leadership Development Program. Upon your completion of the Business Economy of America program, students are invited to attend our monthly Leadership Development meetings or our Summer Business Camp. The Leadership Development program covers a variety of financial topics to continue to expand the student’s business and financial knowledge. Senior-level executives work with these students for these meetings on a quarterly basis, at a minimum.
Key Knowledge Areas
Our comprehensive business curriculum covers many areas of business and leadership knowledge, including Personal Finance, FinTech, BlockChain, Entrepreneurship, Career Preparation, Corporate Structure, and Professional Skills Development.
Students who excel during the YAB camp series are offered leadership opportunities for next year’s camp. There is also the Leadership Team, who lead the preparation of the following year’s Summer Business Camp. Youth leaders who are selected for the Leadership Team get the opportunity to help build camp guidelines, promote membership in local high schools, and many other duties that are necessary for making the camp successful.
The application process for the Leadership Team takes place in the fall each year.
