There is a free summer camp, at Point Park University’s campus, available for qualified sophomore, junior, and senior high school students interested in accounting. The Accounting Career Awareness Program (ACAP) will take place from SUNDAY, JUNE 25 – FRIDAY, JUNE 30.
The goal of ACAP, which is part of the National Association of Black Accountants, Inc., is to increase the understanding of accounting career opportunities among high school students in underrepresented minority groups. Through ACAP, students throughout the United States have received educational enrichment experiences and practical help needed for college preparation and a career in accounting.
The field of accounting has been identified as one of the fastest growing professions according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor. Yet studies have shown that there has been declining enrollment in accounting and finance among minority students.
The deadline to apply is Friday, May 19, 2017.
