What students say about the program...

  • "I spent a year as a part of the Berkeley County Schools Business Education Partnership Leadership Academy to learn about networking, marketing, financing, etc in order to create a project and present to a panel of judges in March."

    "Mentored by Allen Keys and assisted by Steve Truax, we were assigned to the nonprofit CCAP /Loaves and Fishes. We did our job and won them a donation of $1000. Everyone in the program also got a scholarship of $350. To any upcoming Senior in Berkeley County, I highly recommend you apply to this program. It is an experience you will never forget (not to mention all the connections you’ll make with students and businesses across the county)."
