Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week (PFEW) 2018 Hosts Two Local Students




Your Pike County Chamber of Commerce is all about business! We love supporting not only local business, but anything that educates our youth about business and future employment opportunities right here in our community. That’s why for years we’ve supported Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week (PFEW). This award-winning program teaches students to understand and celebrate our American private enterprise system and provides a unique, hands-on learning experience that helps students develop the vital skills businesses like yours need to succeed. This summer, two students from Delaware Valley HS joined over 2,000 students from across the state to participate in the 40th annual PFEW summer program held in Williamsport.

At PFEW, students form management teams of approximately eighteen students and run their own manufacturing company, competing against other student companies. Throughout the week, world class speakers address the students on a wide variety of topics germane to the business world and their personal and professional development. It is not only a powerful educational experience, it can be positively life-changing. Here are several quotes from students who attended this year’s program:

“It can be summarized as the best way to spend a week of my summer for the fact that I learned and grew with everyone around me… Not only did I learn more than ever, but the teamwork put into making choices, as a whole, was an out-of-this-world experience you cannot find anywhere. In the span of six to seven days, I have learned, made friends and grew as a person.” Olivia Becker – Delaware Valley HS
“It was a larger than life experience. Coming into the week, I only expected to learn about business and how to run it. I didn’t expect all the phenomenal speeches and moments with friends I have made throughout the week.” Nico Forlenza, Delaware Valley HS

PFEW is taught entirely by volunteer practitioners from the PA business community, and each year, over 200 volunteers are needed to put on this world-class program. Students attend via a $625 scholarship donated by a local business, foundation, civic organization or individual. To get involved as a donor or volunteer, or to discover more about PFEW, visit their website at www.pfew.org, or call Scott Lee at 814-833-9576.
