The five established IPAA/PESA Petroleum Academies in the Houston and Fort Worth Independent School districts prepare students to
become effective leaders and global ambassadors by introducing them to the importance of teamwork in business dynamics.
A key educational component for the students is the experience of externing with IPAA and PESA member companies.
Dozens of students spent part of this year taking part in a professional workplace setting at an energy company. The program also
includes interview preparation, resume writing, professional workplace conduct and dale Carnegie leadership training.
