Students at Alton High School will participate in a program where they will choose a business professional as a mentor.
The Riverbend CEO program allows students to tour 60 local business and host 60 guest speakers who are business professionals.
The goal is for teens to learn the ins and outs of owning a business. Students will then launch their own businesses in the spring of 2017.
Students at Marquette Catholic School are also participating. Students who want to participate must apply during their junior year.
