Junior Achievement of Dallas, Inc.
August 25, 2009
Last spring, I volunteered to teach my first group of high school seniors. I say, "my first because it won't be my last." For someone who has never taught seniors or been in high school for many years, this was a little out of my comfort zone.
Even though I was comfortable with the course material, JA provided a training session and the teaching materials were so well done. It was easy, organized and exceptional quality.
For six weeks, I spent an hour with these kids and really felt a mutual respect with these students. They were eager to learn the subject matter, participated and asked lots of questions. As seniors, they understood the impact of good and bad financial decisions could have on their lives. Overall, a very rewarding personal experience. Go W.T. White!
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
their passion and commitment to teach meaningful life skills with regards to community, economy, personal and business finance. Something we could all benefit from!
