WITW values the interaction between youth and adults in the artistic process, however, WITW is not a dedicated youth camp and youths 18 years old and younger must be accom-panied by adults who are not </p><p>only responsible for them, but who plan to learn along with them. (Teenagers, age 16-18, wont necessarily have to work with their adult co-learner on projects.) Adults also provide the coaching and guidance nec-essary for youth to focus and complete their ideas. WITW instructors are skilled crafts-men and encouraging teach-ers, but they do not provide the discipline and persuasion often necessary to help youth carry out their plans. Adults are ultimately responsible for the progress of their youth co-learners. </p><p>Cost: $425http://weekinthewoods.orgContact: Rebecca Levey, </p><p>455-7473, info@weekin-thewoods.org</p><p>Alaska Business WeekSponsor: Alaska State </p><p>Chamber and University of Alaska Fairbanks</p><p>Ages: Finishing grades 9-12Dates and times: July 31-</p><p>Aug. 6Location: UAF campusDescription: The program </p><p>is designed to give high school students hands-on experience in running a company, compet-ing with other student com-panies to arrive at a winning strategy.</p><p>The curriculum includes a series of presentations from statewide business leaders who share their strategies and expe-rience in real-life scenarios.
