The local program is where the journey begins. Youth Scholars and Junior Leaders work with community and business leaders to learn how the American economic system works and how it fits into the global economy. Along the way, they gain experience leading and working in groups and they become acquainted with career opportunities in various businesses.
The materials for your local program are available here for you to download to your computer or to print out (you will need to have Adobe Acrobat to view them). The material on this page has everything needed by Youth Scholars, Junior Leaders and Discussion Leaders. Extension Agents have additional material available on the American Private Enterprise System UK Canvas site (www.uky.edu/Canvas) or by contacting email@example.com.
The American Private Enterprise System: Program Manual will be needed for each session. Be sure the Discussion Leaders and Guest Speakers are provided with the part they teach.
Part VI: Investor-owned Corporations and Limited Liability Companies
Part VII: Cooperatives
These publications are strongly recommended for those attending the Kentucky Youth Seminar who are interested in winning scholarships and/or a trip to NICE.
Using the board cases in your program is optional but strongly suggested. Students who have had experience with board cases at the local level, typically do better at the Kentucky Youth Seminar.
