The Accounting Career Awareness Program (ACAP)

The Accounting Career Awareness Program (ACAP) is an innovative career development program designed specifically for minority students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year in high school in August or September 2014. The program’s primary goal is to increase the number of underrepresented students of color that attend college and major in accounting, finance or business.

The 2014 ACAP summer residency week will be held at the University of California at Berkeley from
July 13 – July 18, 2014. The summer residency program will include supervised corporate visits, team building activities, lectures and fun. And it’s FREE.

ACAP will:

• Create awareness to the vast opportunities available in the accounting, finance and business profession;

• Allow you to leverage accounting and finance concepts within your everyday life for financial empowerment;

• Generate opportunities to develop networking skills to assist in building relationships for future
educational/professional advancement; and

• Provide you with the opportunity to move one step closer to understanding your career passion to prepare for college.

Requirements for participation:

2. Attend a local high school in the San Francisco/EastBay/South Bay Area
