Free Enterprise Week
This event supports tomorrow’s free market business leaders from our community through Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week (PFEW), a program of the Foundation for Free Enterprise Education. Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week is an intensive program that educates high school students about the American free enterprise system, bringing motivated students together with business people from throughout the state. This unique concept in learning has enhanced the lives of over 31,000 young adults for thirty-four years.
During PFEW, participants not only learn to appreciate our free enterprise system, but they also see from a practitioner's perspective what it takes to be successful in an increasingly competitive global marketplace. Student companies simulate the actual operation of their own business for the equivalent of three years. Facing all of the decisions that real executives are confronted by, the student companies are mentored by dedicated business volunteers who serve as Company Advisors. Sharing their knowledge and expertise, Company Advisors address the most significant issues facing business today in straightforward, informal discussion with students.
Accented with motivational speakers and interactive learning exercises, this one-of-a-kind program furnishes a real life educational experience for eager students. Scholarship winners grasp the value of teamwork, cooperation and leadership and are provided with an invaluable opportunity to develop communication skills.
