The Aspen Youth Leadership Institute program culimates with the unique opportunity for our students to apply the skills they have learned by owning and operating their own business during their final year at Aspen. The students develop on-the-job skills and business management training via participation Bear's Student Enterprises. In order to prepare themselves for this substantial undertaking, students participate in a summer book study that previews business and entrepreneurial concepts.
