This summer, high school students are encouraged to register for PeopleFund's Junior Entrepreneurship Track (JET), a year long educational program designed to prepare students for life after high school graduation. Through a 5-week summer program and mentorship pairings throughout the following academic year, JET provides practical skills while inspiring students to pursue meaningful careers.
The curriculum includes entrepreneurship, financial literacy, lifeskills, diversity, and workforce development and will bring in guest lecturers, subject matter experts, and community leaders. JET also features career simulations and hands-on field trips so participants can learn more about the wide scope of careers Austin has to offer. The program is entirely free of charge. Transportation and meals will be provided throughout the summer curriculum.
Enrollment is open to all students incoming 9th grade through graduating seniors. All applications must be received by June 1, 2013 for consideration. For more information, visit the PeopleFund website or contact Laurie Annear, Business Assistance & Education Manager via phone at 512-222-1019 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
