Foundation For C.H.O.I.C.E.

CHOICE

A "business champion" is a business professional or company that works with a mentor-student team as the subject of a meaningful Research a Business project. This consists of three 30-minute phone calls along with a half-day virtual career shadow.

For a nine week period during the course of the year, our mentors and students 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, something most underprivileged youth never have the opportunity to do growing up. 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.
