EXCEL 10: Corporation/Leadership

Learning to ride the public transportation system in Anchorage

10th-grade students take an in-depth look at the structure of a business and engage in a simulated corporation. Participants apply for a specific position within the corporation, be interviewed for the job, and carry out the duties of the position during their 10-day stay. Likewise, they will be paired with an employer in a career of their choice for a job-shadow, as well as learn valuable life and employability skills such as time-management, honesty, integrity, customer service, and superior work ethic. Students successfully completing an EXCEL 10 session can earn .5 high school credit.
