Hi $IQ! Welcome!

I do volunteer work with my kids schools and with the local Junior Achievement office. I've been doing JA for 3 years now and this year is one of my best. I've done 5 classes already and I have kids that call to me in the mall and outside of school all the time. The program is fun and educational and fits into most school state requirements.

I have a very emotional bond to what I do so I try to do something positive. I trained to help in a woman's shelter once but realized that I would not be able to handle the stress and emotions that went with it so I found something that was more positive for me. And what is more positive at times than a room full of smiling children who are thrilled to have a visitor in their classroom?

Good luck in your search
