The Rotary Club of Oakland visited American Indian Public High School to present to our 10th and 11th grade students a wonderful opportunity through their organization to be a part of CAMP ENTERPRISE! Camp Enterprise is an opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to immerse themselves for three days in April to better understand the free enterprise system and entrepreneurship. Presentations are made by business executives and entrepreneurs who share their experiences and answer questions on a variety of fields and interests. Students will participate in discussions about business and life after high school including a chance at scholarships totaling approximately $5000!
Many AIPHS students have expressed interest in this program and see this as something that will help them along their trajectory to college and will be applying for this prestigious opportunity. For parents and other community members, Debo Sarkar will be coming back out for another presentation on February 15th at 8:00a.m. Applications for the camp and a link to Rotary Club CAMP ENTERPRISE web site are featured here. All applications are due February 24th at 5p.m.
Our wonderful seniors are planning a trip to Yosemite as their culminating trip which will be focused on reflecting on their experience as students through the years and the wonders of nature and sustainability among other things.
Below is a link to their GO FUND ME page they started for us all to contribute to this cause. On their behalf, I kindly ask that you consider contributing to this worthwhile cause.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, Matthew Gordan or Chaniel Clark...their advisors.
They are a FANTASTIC group of young people who will undoubtedly do great things in our world!
