Introducing the Wharton Global Youth Program Educator Advisory Board, advising all our Wharton high school programs. Several members of this dynamic group of high school business and finance teachers joined us on the Wharton campus in July 2019 to kick off the board activities and discuss the past, present and future of the Wharton Global Youth Program, including online web content, the Wharton High School Summer Program, the Wharton Global High School Investment Competition, online course development and teacher training. We work with them regularly to help guide our decisions and improve our offerings.
