Volunteering for Junior Achievement

I just finished volunteer training for the Junior Achievement Company program. Basically along with a few other volunteers I will be guiding a group of high school students through the process of starting a company, everything from developing a product idea, to producing and selling. I was part of this program when I was in high school, and we had a blast. We even made a bit of money and some good friends.

We had some enthusiastic advisors too. I remember when we were brainstorming product ideas, this advisor actually made us prototypes of some of his ideas (one popper-scooper stuck in my memory). It’s going to interesting to be on the advisor side of things.
