If you want to be introduced to the business world while still in high school, then one of the best things you can do for yourself is to go to a high school business program over the summer.

The high school years are a time for discovering oneself — learning strengths and weaknesses, identifying dreams and goals for the future, developing key communication and real-world skills, and mapping out plans for college or a career after graduation.
Think about the last time you went to a concert, or a live event of any kind. Did you get a picture or a video of the event? Was it more like several pictures or videos of it? In all likelihood, the people around you were also trying to get the same picture as you. We all want to be able to post our most exciting news to Facebook, Instagram, twitter and other social media channels so that we can tell the world, “I was there!” Do we miss anything when we do that? When we travel to an event only to watch it through a screen, do we miss out on the experience of being there in person? I would argue that we do, to a degree. There is something to be said about being somewhere and saving those memories to the oldest hard drive in existence, our brains. I am no scientist myself, but I would argue that we are able to be a bit more present without the hindrance of the technology that runs our daily lives.

Daniel Meadvin, a student at the two week, Julian Krinsky summer business program has spent the past four summers at JKCP. Daniel has continued returning each summer because he appreciates that JKCP is not a 'traditional camp.' “It’s nice that there are so many options to try different things that aren’t typical at most other camps and you have the ability to pick and choose activities.” This past summer Daniel took part in the JK Business School summer program and we talked to him all about it:
For years, JKCP has been offering 2.5 hour weekly classes in various business related subjects. From Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Stock Market Trading and more,, these classes have been among our most popular offerings, giving students a chance to learn what it takes to make it in the "business world." While these classes are an incredible introduction to key business concepts, our students helped us identify a need for a "next step" and it has finally arrived.
