High School Programs
Our children’s future in the increasingly competitive 21st-century global workplace is in peril. U.S. high school graduates’ overall preparation for entry-level jobs is unequivocally deficient, according to 42 percent of employers polled in The Conference Board’s 2006 work-readiness survey. Our students need to understand how to be successful in the workplace, how to manage their financial lives and the importance of entrepreneurship – whether that means guiding their own business or guiding their careers. It is today’s students who will keep America competitive – and they need the skills to do it successfully.
Each high school program contains five to eight lessons. Lessons are generally taught once a week for six weeks – 45 minutes to an hour for each lesson.
