Accounting Summer Camp is a Thing in New York

High school students in the state of New York have the chance to participate in the Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession program this summer, the deadline to apply is Friday, June 23, 2023 at 11:59pm which you can do at this link. Let’s skip the unnecessary commentary and get straight to the details.

From New York State Society of CPAs:

COAP helps you explore what you can do in the accounting field. If you think accounting is just tax, think again. Plot your future as a Chief Financial Officer, forensics investigator, data analyst, software developer, entertainment and sports agent, auditor or entrepreneur.

When you apply, please note the location of the program for which you are applying. Note that program planners may arrange for transportation to their colleges or universities, but please plan for alternative transportation as backup. Be aware of the deadline and note the need for a high school guidance counselor and parental approval.

The program provides real insight into how CPAs influence the business world. The program is an important component of the New York State Society of CPAs’ (NYSSCPA) efforts to recruit an increased number of students into the accounting profession, with a particular focus on those from underrepresented groups. The Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession (COAP) program is open to all, regardless of race, color, national origin or sex.
