Review for Junior Achievement Of Rocky Mountain, Inc., Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a volunteer for JA in a Day. I taught the first lesson to the class, looking into the eyes of 30 strangers. I think looking at each one of them, calling them by name, seeing their smiles, hearing their laughter and knowledge, eradicated our unfamiliarity. By the end of that day, not one of those incredible children was a stranger to me. I knew their family stories, classroom crushes, hobbies, strengths, fears, dreams and aspirations. The children’s willingness to engage, ask questions, share ideas and listen was astounding.
