GREENCASTLE — Five Greencastle-Antrim Senior High School students could win scholarships to attend the Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week (PFEW) at Lycoming College or the Pennsylvania College of Technology this summer.
PFEW is a one-of-a-kind summer program that pairs students with business mentors for a unique and challenging opportunity to see what it is like to run their own business.
The application is $295 and is available at www.pfew.org. Deadline to apply is May 1, 2019.
Individuals interested in the program are encouraged to learn more on the PFEW website or by contacting the Chamber during business hours, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at 717-597-4610.
Serving the area since 1955, the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce helps members thrive by promoting member prosperity through economic well-being and community vitality.
During the summer program, participants will make up an imaginary management team where they will learn first-hand about the Free Enterprise System.
Their task will be to turn their failing company into a financial success.
They will develop their own marketing strategies, design a website and in essence, make all of the decisions that are demanded of real life company executives.
Sound like all work and no fun?
“No way,” say organizers.
PFEW provides students with a chance like no other — to experience what it is like to live on a college campus.
