This is our first year as an elevator grant winner and we are very excited about the opportunity to expand our program. With the funding we will integrate entrepreneurship studies in middle schools and community groups primarily in low income areas. To help in our work we have partnered with "NFTE " (NFTE is the National Foundation for the Teaching of Entrepreneurship). We will also use these contacts to hold a summer biz camp.

As an update to our project, we have held preliminary meeting with NFTE (National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship) and our community partner AAUD ( Aliquippa Alliance for Unity and Development) and will hold a 6 week BIZ Camp for youth ages 12 -16 this summer from June 29 to August 7th. We will use the NFTE curriculum and a local middle school teacher. We are expanding our student base to include four local school districts and would like to enroll 20 students for the camp. This month we met 5 times and are developing a flyer and student applications. Everyone is excited about the project.

Part of the excitement is also due to the arrival of the Extreme Eship Tour, which our school is funding under our broad support of Entrepreneurship . The tour arrives April 7. I will give you an update next month.

Best Regards, Paul Rogers

The Entrepreneurship program is gaining momentum. During April we hosted the EET ( Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour) which was attended by over 200 students from a three state area including high school and middle school students. The publicity received was excellent and the students participating were all delighted with the experience.
Our plans for the youth Biz Camp are moving along. The camp will be six weeks long from June 29 to August 8 and will include a business plan competition , 11 guest speakers, six field trips, and 5 lab sessions. We have 20 students enrolled of the 22 seats available. We expect to fill those seats this week.
Efforts to expand our certificate program to include an associated degree continue to be a source of debate and research. Our goal is to service the traditional student and to promote economic development. The degree will be offered in the 2009-2010 academic year.

On June 29 we started our BizCamp ( attached flyer)and exceeded our estimated enrollment of 18 students. The six week Entrepreneurship camp began with 25 middle school students.
During the month of July we had six guest speakers covering topics such as web page design, recording studio, catering, video production, and printing and copying. The business owners gave a brief talk of their business and the unique qualifications for starting the business. All the students were encouraged to ask questions and make comments regarding the business location, sales and operations.
Also during July we toured a small airport and avionics Company, a business incubator, a local market district and the Carnegie Science Center. On a weekly basis, the students are on campus working in the computer labs preparing their business plans and researching their business ideas. )See attached calendar for other events). A market day is also planned where the students will present their products and services to the general public. ( See attached Market Day flyer).
In conjunction with the NFTE curriculum, the students will prepare a business plan. The class with include a business plan competition and winner awards. Finally, a community celebration is planned with a preliminary estimate of 250 people attending.
Certainly a busy, busy time for entrepreneurship at CCBC!
