Congratulations to Ajani Young '18, Etzer Laurore '18 , Dashon Ridley '18 and Ayanna McCarley '20 (pictured here with BMHS Principal Dr. Van der Waag) for being accepted into the Washington Builders Entrepreneurial Internship this summer through Gallup and the Clifton Foundation. This program seeks to attract the best and brightest Greater Washington students to participate in their summer internship opportunity.
Students will have the opportunity to team up with peers from across the city for a 5-week immersion in entrepreneurship, learning how to identify business opportunities, create a customer, and make a profit. In addition, they will gain hands-on work experience in marketing, event management, space design, community partnerships, selling, market research, and budgeting.
Participants will also have the opportunity to meet successful entrepreneurs who are starting businesses relevant to their individual passions and interests. They will be invited to apply what the learn each week in city-wide entrepreneurial challenges, will create a career portfolio, attain real work experience, and walk away an entrepreneur. After 5 weeks of non-stop learning, working and playing participants are ready to navigate their own future and be their own boss, at college or work.
Congratulations to these 4 entrepreneurs.
