Review for Junior Achievement of New York, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've volunteered with Junior Achievement for over seven years because I believe in the very real impact I can have on young people in a classroom. For me, personally, as a man of color, and as a small business owner, it is extremely important that young people know that they have options in life. I especially appreciate having opportunities to pass on many of the valuable lessons I was taught by my parents and teachers, including the basic idea that, if they put their mind and energy into achieving something, they can accomplish what they set out to do. Many kids today have few people, if anyone, out there telling them this.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Begin in-school programs earlier in the semester.
