B-BAY Afterschool 

Are you a middle school student who is interested in business but have other summer plans? Check out the Berkeley Business Academy for Youth Middle School Afterschool Program! B-BAY Afterschool is a virtual experience offered to students currently in grades 6-8th!

Facing change head-on is familiar territory for entrepreneurs. An entrepreneurial mindset allows you to overcome challenges, make predictions about the future, learn from mistakes, and strive for improvement. While you will face the social and economic impacts of COVID-19 for years to come, as a future business leader you can be a part of shaping the new normal. B-BAY Afterschool will allow you to do just that!  Through instruction from BerkeleyHaas faculty, industry experts, college teaching assistant mentors  and critical thinking, problem solving workshops with your peers, students will work in teams to utilize new found knowledge to develop a solution for a Social Impact problem as we transition into  a Long or Post-Covid world.
