Mini CEO Academic Workshop Series
The Mini CEO workshop series is designed for both single-sex and coed middle school classrooms to encourage students to develop important leadership skills. This program is offered at a critical time in students’ development as they learn to navigate social pressures and counteract biases. Throughout the course, students participate in a range of executive activities as “CEOs” of their own companies, including defining their own venture, brainstorming products and services, launching a company website, pitching to investors, developing teams and negotiating partnerships. The Mini CEO program not only encourages students to think big by running a “company” of their own, but also empowers them with practical skills and knowledge applicable to their current academic and extracurricular pursuits. The series concludes with students setting smart, ambitious and achievable goals, with a particular focus on how to best prepare for their upcoming transition to junior high school.
