Riverbend CEO Program
The Riverbend Growth Association and the Midland Institute is partnering with the Alton School District to launch a program in the fall of 2016 called Creating Entrepreneurship Opportunities, otherwise known as the Riverbend CEO Program. This program is designed for high school seniors who have a passion for creating their own business. Students are immersed in real life learning experiences with the opportunity to take risks, manage the results, and learn from outcomes. During the 2016-17 school year 22 seniors from Alton High School and Marquette High School will be a part of the first Riverbend CEO class. This class never meets in a traditional classroom but meets in area businesses. Students will get the opportunity to network with local business leaders. Funding for the program is through donations from the business community. The program’s goal is to create opportunities for our business community to share their expertise with our students, which will create a community that will make our students want to come back to start businesses, work, and raise families in the Alton / Godfrey area.
