As a high schooler, you’re always asked the question:
What do you want to be
when you grow up?
The problem is, the answer to that question is not so simple.
You may have a general idea of what you want to be when you grow up. Or, you may feel completely lost, and have no idea what you want to do, or what to study in college. Or, if you even want to go to college!
There are so many decisions you are expected to make as a student that affect your future. Yet, you are given so few opportunities to make those decisions from real-world experience.
We know what this pressure feels like, because we have been there. That’s why we created BizTank.

This Program Was Built For You
Whether you are a dreamer, a planner, a know-it-all, or a I’m-not-so-sure-I-know-what-I’m-doing-with-my-life kind of kid, BizTank is for you.
BizTank is a special scholarship program for high school students who are interested in learning about the business world — outside of the classroom. BizTank gives you a behind-the-scenes look into a variety of industries through local and nationally-recognized speakers, who talk about the direction their lives have taken, their hard work, successes and of course, failures.
HOW IT WORKS
We know you’re busy and your time is valuable. That’s why there are three opportunities each year to participate in BizTank.
BizTank consists of three, 8-week seasons, Fall, Winter and Spring, meeting once a week on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. (dinner is provided from 6 to 6:30 PM CDT) and is offered to junior and senior students from any local area high school.
Our speakers represent a variety of industries and job titles, from police officers, to designers, military officers, restaurant owners, bankers, electricians, and everything in between. We’ve heard from nationally recognized players such as the CEO of the Honest Company and the president of TOMS shoes.
We’re not here to tell you what to do. It’s our hope that you feel in control of your future and are excited about exploring all of your options.
WHAT YOU NEED
