The donation will support the JET Summer Camp in which middle school students from across the state of Delaware learn business principles. During the camp, the students engage in hands-on activities, work in teams to create a mini business, participate in selling their products on market day, and compete in a business plan competition.   The JET Summer Camp – which is in its ninth year – has been financially supported by the Roy Klein Education Foundation in each of the last four years.
