In 1992, the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce and South Lakes High School established a unique partnership - the first program of its kind - to take the entire senior class to the Sheraton Reston where they spend the day learning about ethical decision making and how it will affect their adult lives. Using a series of four different complex, but real-life scenarios, students are asked to review, discuss and reach ethical decisions for each scenario. Table Leaders, approximately 70 volunteers from our business community, lead a small group of 8-10 students through these scenarios and facilitate vibrant discussion. Ethics Day is a great volunteer opportunity! You will leave with energy and enthusiasm for what this next generation of business professionals will bring to the business world.
The Greater Reston Chamber relies on the generous support of our members to provide this complimentary program.
