Business Careers High School, in conjunction with The University of Texas at San Antonio, participates in The Leadership Challenge Program. Sixteen high-achieving students have been chosen to participate in this program for the 2013 – 2014 school year. In The Leadership Challenge Program students will be introduced to a new perspective on leadership, “One that is more open-minded, accepting of diversity, creative and capable of recognizing and adapting to complex organizational dynamics.”
Additionally, students will learn about the For the Kids (FTK) project. This community-wide project will help to support local families battling childhood cancer through fundraising and friendship. Each student team will work closely with UTSA undergraduate student leaders and Executive M.B.A. students to develop a strategic plan for executing fundraising and pediatric cancer activities within their own schools.
