The SunPower Solar Energy Academy has been conducted over the last two years. 25 students in year one, and 21 students this year participated in and graduated from the week long program. This academy is an intensive work-based learning experience where students work in collaborative teams as a solar start-up company and design a residential solar system. Through hands-on activities, industry tours, and lectures from solar professionals students learn trending professional solar information about project scope, design, financial and environmental economics. The academy has been hosted by Cuyamaca College both years.

Ethics in Business Conference 2017
El Cajon Mayor Bills Wells Addresses the Importance of Ethics
The San Diego East County Chamber of Commerce and the Grossmont Union High School District presented the annual Ethics in Business Conference for 160 advanced CTE students from nine district schools on Tuesday, March 14, at Cuyamaca College. The annual event’s goal is to train the next generation to become principled leaders. The half-day conference challenged students to consider ideas and situations that are designed to help them think critically about ethics in business situations. The award-winning Ethics in Business Program, which is presented by the Chamber’s Business Education Committee, was developed in 1992 to educate our high school seniors about situations and ethical dilemmas that occur in the workplace. Back by popular demand was keynote speaker Jeff Bramstedt, former US Navy Seal and film/commercial stuntman. He discussed the value and importance of ethics and how individuals can make a difference. Many San Diego East County Chamber members participated in the program by facilitating table discussions with groups of students.
