Its primary objective is to increase the number of high school students from underrepresented ethnic groups to attend college and major in accounting. 

We launched our first Accounting Careers and Awareness Program (ACAP) residency week in July 2012 at the University of Central Florida with a class of 15 upcoming high school juniors and seniors. We have since continued to host this program every year at the University of Central Florida in the month of July.
