Program Details

WBENC FutureGEN aims to develop future generations of entrepreneurs, innovators, and workforce leaders by empowering students to dream big and achieve more through early exposure to entrepreneurship, STEAM, and cross-industry career opportunities through interactive learning and real-life experiences. WBENC FutureGEN engages WBENC’s robust network of entrepreneurs, corporate partners, and subject matter experts to foster critical and creative thinking skills through enriched learning.

In recognition of 2023 National Career Development Day, WBENC engaged its network of industry experts to facilitate in-person educational curriculum, conversational dialogue, and hands-on activities during the inaugural WBENC FutureGEN program.
