Staying home doesn’t mean not being engaged. B-BAY Afterschool is a brand new virtual experience offered to students currently in grades 6-8th!

Want to be part of the next wave of the future? Facing change head-on is familiar territory for entrepreneurs. An entrepreneurial mindset allows you to overcome challenges, make predictions about the future, learn from mistakes, and strive for improvement. While you will face the social and economic impacts of COVID-19 for years to come, as a future business leader you can be a part of shaping the new normal. B-BAY Afterschool will allow you to do just that!  Through instruction from Haas Faculty, critical thinking, problem solving workshops with your peers and support from  UC Berkeley student mentors, students will work in teams to utilize new found knowledge to develop a solution for a problem caused by COVID-19.

  • Have fun!
