THE STORY:

We, Strictly Business, have a mission to professionally, respectfully, and intelligently conduct business not only with other companies and clients, but also with one another. We will strive to communicate financial information clearly, while also being open to new ideas and creativity. We are Strictly Business, because business is what it's all about.

Mark I UFSC Emerging Leaders National Apprentice Challenge is just that, an academic challenge that pushes students physically as well as mentally. The program covers the following five areas: personal leadership skills, financial literacy, business plans, entrepreneurship and physical fitness. This program is for students that wish to make the best of their futures by putting in efficient hour of work today. Students have the opportunity to network with CEO's and Vice Presidents of fortune 400 and fortune 500 companies. Some of the benefits of participating in this competition include: improving communication and verbal skills, meeting leaders in the business world, and having the opportunity to utilize the skills learned in training.

Mark I is an outsatnding experience that helps a group of young adults such as myself to broaden and expand their views on business and the corporate world. This phenomenal program challenging our strengths and weaknesses as indivisuals and also as teams. Mark I has been teaching us so much about the business world within the past few days of the program. So far, our advisors are keeping us active with a schedule that containes a variety of activities such as:

-Physical Training

-Personal Leadership

-Understanding Legal Concepts

-Social Media Concepts & Strategies

-Team Working Sessions

Your charitable donations to this program will help fund the future activites of next years young adults (the program will be held in St. Louis).

For each student to attend each year, it is $800-$900 per person. The minimum amount of students that can attend are 12. In order to share our experience with other students next year, we wish to begin raising money in advance. We have all personally pledged $10 to get started, and now we ask for your help. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for next year.

Team Testimonials:

"I really didn’t have a clue what I was getting into at first, but I’m now appreciative for the opportunity that was given to me because the information will help me in the near future."

- Kiara Laws

In the beginning I didn’t have a clear understanding about what the program itself was about what we would actually be doing, but now see that it’s all about leadership and team effort, which helps us in the real world with any job you choose in life; at no time, will you ever not need at least one person to help you. - Whitney Lewis

Mark I is a phenomenal program because it broadens my views on business and the corporate world. This program has given me the confidence to open a business, run a business and protect my business in the near future.-Niyah pledger

"I knew from the application that this program would do nothing but help me. I am now experiencing the what the real business world is all about. Working when your tired and with others is not the challenge for me, but completing all the work that is asked of you, is. This is not the first year, so an encouraging thought is that it has been done before and it's not impossible."
