Businesses play an integral role in The Challenge Program, Inc.'s mission. Both local and national businesses serve as business ambassadors and have the unique opportunity to speak to students about their success stories, their businesses and the careers that are available to students after they complete their formal education. Students are often excited to learn about different companies and career opportunities that exist within their communities and begin to realize that the can be successful in or near their hometown.

The businesses partnering with TCP are diverse - coming from 19 different industries. They run the gamut from Utility Companies to Financial Services, Individuals to Engineering and Defense to Manufacturing.

Businesses have served as the backbone of our program since the very beginning. In addition to their monetary contributions, our business partners or Business Ambassadors as they are called, have provided their time and talent to their school partners - whether it is presenting at the orientation assembly or working with students after school to show them the possibilities that lie ahead, they have taken their role seriously. For all they have done, we salute them.

Our informative Business Introduction to The Challenge Program video is a great place to start to gain a quick understanding of how The Challenge Program can be put to work for you. To find out how your business can partner with TCP to motivate students, please contact us.
