As both a parent and an educator, I cannot say enough about OBW! All three of my kids attended the program. The speakers, consultants and company advisors are outstanding! They impart real-world experience in business practices and personal finance.

Two of my children have attended OBW. I cannot begin to tell you how great this experience was for my daughter! It has helped her grow in ways that we didn’t think would or could happen until she’d gone through at least a year of college. And she absolutely loved it!

OBW allowed my son to recognize the skills he already had and encouraged him to use them in a team setting. He came away empowered in public speaking, setting goals for career possibilities, and overall, a healthier self-esteem.

I learned a lot, but more importantly, I DID a lot. Business is about doing and being a part of OBW has allowed to me to DO and not just learn.
