CareerConnect Round Up – September 26, 2018

A Burger Champion is crowned! Business Connect senior Chaurice Chaput just participated in a week-long collaborative business workshop with Young American’s Bank and Park Burger, where she learned about starting and sustaining a restaurant concept. The culminating event was a competition between participants to create a new burger for the Park Burger franchise. Chaurice’s “Ring of Fame” Burger was the winner and will be featured during the month of October. “I was not only able to expand my mind creatively by creating my own personal burger,” Chaurice said of the experience, “but the business people I met during the week were one of the best parts. The opportunity that was given to young people through this program was outstanding. I now know a little more on what it really takes to open and run a successful business such as Park Burger.” Congratulations, Chaurice, on taking a risk and participating in the event. It wasn’t easy, but we are incredibly proud of your accomplishment.

Our third annual Business Leader Roundtable is right around the corner, and we would like to invite you to participate! This is a special event brings students and local business leaders together, and gives students the opportunity to engage in authentic dialogue and practice their networking skills. This Roundtable also serves to launch CareerConnect’s first big project of the year by introducing students to the nine different functions of business. Our students will create Business Superheroes and creatively present their fictitious stories to elementary students at Denver Green School to introduce the concepts of business and entrepreneurship to a younger audience.
