Inauguaral ACAP Charlotte Week

What is ACAP?


The Accounting Career Awareness Program (ACAP), a part of the National Association of Black Accountants, Inc. (NABA) 
Center for Advancement of Minority Accountants (CAMA), is an innovative career development program designed specifically for
minority students who are juniors and seniors in high school. Its primary objective is to increase the number of high school students from under-represented ethnic groups that attend college and major in accounting.

ACAP Overview

We are pleased to share a high level overview of the events of NABA Charlotte’s inaugural ACAP Program in partnership with the Aspire program at the University of North Carolina Charlotte (UNCC). 

Sunday, July 17th we welcome our students, moving them into the dorms on UNCC’s campus and give them an overview of the week.

Monday, July 18th we help them get to know themselves with assessments and begin the talks about college and financial aid. The day also includes a session on networking and a “What Not To Wear” fashion show.

Tuesday, July 19th we introduce the students to the world of business, potential majors and talk about preparedness for the college experience.  The students will work on a group project and will end the day with a business etiquette & networking dinner, sponsored by Dixon Hughes Goodman.

Wednesday, July 20th we will have a panel discussion on the various career paths in business and accounting, group project work and get information on the college foundation.

Thursday, July 21st the students will tour Bank of America’s corporate offices and present their group projects to a panel of judges. The evening will end with the closing reception and awards program.

Friday, July 22nd the students end their ACAP experience with a service project at the Crisis Assistance Ministry and participate in the ASPIRE closing program.
 
Seems like a lot, of work, but we did build in some downtime for the students in the schedule. The ACAP board has worked hard to ensure the students walk away with a new appreciation for careers in the accounting profession.

This program would not be possible without the assistance of our corporate partners.
