The Benefit is the National Academy Foundation’s signature event, and celebrates the meaningful interactions between business leaders and academy students that position young people for lifelong success, invigorate the workforce, and help to build a stronger economy.
The Benefit is truly unique in that students are at the heart of the evening. Each year, students from academies across the country attend the event to showcase their work, practice their networking skills, and meet role models from the business community.
This year's Benefit was held at Cipriani Wall Street, on Monday, May 6 at 6:30 pm. NAF honored Kim and Mark A. Standish and RBC Capital Markets with the Corporate Committment to Education Award.
