Thank You Junior Achievement of New Jersey!

Earlier in the year, I shared my experiences as a volunteer and student participant with Junior Achievement. Today, my good friend  Amy Boroff, Development Director for Junior Achievement of New Jersey, shared this video from their Latino Professional Community Day. The event brought together dozens of Hispanic volunteers from corporations and professional associations to mentor students at First Avenue School in Newark, New Jersey. First Avenue’s student population is more than 90% Hispanic. One can imagine the impact of having role models spend the day with these kids. You can literally see the excitement and engagement in their eyes. Please take a few short moments to see the wonderful work done by Amy and the great team at Junior Achivement of New Jersey. It made my day – let it make your day as well. Enjoy!
