The Palmer Center Micro-Enterprise Program at Pepperdine University (the "Program") is now accepting student applications for the 2012-2013 academic year. Students enrolled at the School of Law, Graziadio School of Business and Management, Seaver College, the School of Public Policy, or the School of Education and Psychology are eligible to apply.
The Program, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is seeking qualified students to help underprivileged members of the Los Angeles community find gainful employment and launch micro-businesses. Selected students will mentor Program participants through a 24-week curriculum, which focuses on career development and entrepreneurship. Weekly sessions include resume, cover letter, and mock interview workshops, and lectures on business planning, feasibility analysis, financial accounting, marketing, and fund raising. Lectures are taught by Pepperdine faculty and alumni, successful entrepreneurs, and members of the Los Angeles business and legal community. Sessions are held at the School of Law, on Thursday afternoon, in the fall and spring semesters.
For more information, including a complete description of the Program and expectations for student participants, please download our student-brochure. Students interested in applying to the Program should download and complete the student-application, and email it to Program Assistant Sam Ellis, firstname.lastname@example.org, by September 6th, 2012.
