In order to create a more ethical students, the BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership believes that educating students early in their careers on the topic of ethics, values, and decision-making will help build more ethical future leaders. To do so, the BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership has created the BEE program for high school students.

Building Ethical Employability (BEE-1)

The BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership has developed the Building Ethical Employability (BEE-1) high school program in ethics education.

BEE-1 brings over 1,350 high school students from the north Georgia region each year to the UNG campuses for a half-day program focused on facilitating discussions on ethics and personal branding, providing an understanding of an ethical decision-making process, and increasing student awareness of the importance of ethical behavior throughout life.

This program aligns with the new GeorgiaBEST curriculum and each session addresses at least one of the 15 personal characteristics that the curriculum focuses on improving in students such as attitude, respect, flexibility, organization, etc.

The BEE-1 program consists of three foundational courses:

  • Effective Communication, Critical Thinking and Understanding Your Official Resume
  • What Does Your Personality Say About You?
  • ACTIVITY: Scattergories
