Brightening our future through mentorship of today’s youth
These events are beneficial to both students and teachers alike as they widen their horizons with practical business experience shared by mentors from various industries. This way the youngsters gain key knowledge of what entrepreneurship is and what they need to focus their energy on to acquire skills that will boost their employability and make them more competitive in the job market. Equally important, it contributes to volunteers as well, as they gain fresh ideas and perspectives that can be used in their day-to-day activities. An authentic contact between different generations contributes to both sides, opening the eyes to the possibilities and opportunities in front of us.
I am personally enthusiastic about participating in Junior Achievement activities and I thank them for the ideas, efforts and passion deployed in all their programs. I would wholeheartedly recommend volunteering to my colleagues and friends, as by supporting the success of the young generation we in turn support building a brighter future for the communities we live in.
