CCR Programs and Opportunities

  • Careers in Business and Entrepreneurship

    New this year, the TriDistrict Business and Entrepreneurship Program is an excellent opportunity for students to gain a broad understanding of the wide­ranging aspects of the world of business, as well as to develop their own entrepreneurial mindset as they learn the rigors and rewards of being your own boss. Students learn first-hand from business leaders in our communities and region the careers that exist in the business sector, and what it takes to succeed in areas including, but not limited to finance, marketing, sales, management, entrepreneurship, advertising, and many more. Along the way, students will learn the professional skills that support success in the work environment and practice these skills as they develop a professional resume, digital profile, and engage in practice interviews, site visits, and guest presentations. Students will also earn an English credit for this course as they improve their writing, reading, presentation and other communication skills through a variety of materials and activities.

    In the second semester, students put what they've learned to the test as they enter into an internship experience with a business partner. This internship will provide students the opportunity to deepen their learning into an area of particular interest; it can also be an opportunity to partner with an area entrepreneur and learn more about the successes and challenges of owning your own business.
