Life is a journey and sometimes it feels like we’re living it on a speedway. We’ve become masters of multi-tasking, yet it still feels like there are never enough hours in a day. Time is very precious and the art of prioritization helps us decide how we’re going to spend it.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been happy to spend some of my time volunteering for Junior Achievement (JA). JA “is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.”
I started volunteering to work with Junior Achievement back in the late 90’s and still enjoy it today. Junior Achievement provides a great opportunity to give back to the community, more importantly to make a difference in the lives of students.

Being a Junior Achievement volunteer enables me to share my personal experience and inspire the leaders of tomorrow. JA offers an exceptional program (e.g. Financial Literacy, Work Readiness) to help students prepare for their future. It’s rewarding to be a part of such a great thing!
I encourage you to make a difference in the lives of others by giving your time. JA is a remarkable non-profit organization and there are many other organizations (e.g. Habitat for Humanity) out there — that would welcome your help!
