South Dakota Youth Business Adventure is a week-long summer program, planned and implemented by business people for the purpose of opening the world of South Dakota business opportunities to the state's young people. With ever tightening school budgets, many South Dakota high schools no longer offer a full business curriculum. Our youth have little exposure to, and even less understanding of, the business world. For the most part, their understanding of business is largely based on negative portrayals in the news, on TV, and in the movies.

Students that have completed their junior year in high school are welcome to apply to attend Youth Business Adventure at either campus:

June 7-12 2015 at Black Hills State University in Spearfish Register
June 21-26 2015 at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion Register

South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Industry
SME Sales and Marketing Executives, Inc. of Sioux Falls
