I strongly believe in the power of volunteering and giving back to one’s local community. To that end, I recently joined my friend and Brent Loe Photography admin, Rachel Barnett, as a volunteer for Educurious.
Educurious is a platform to connect students and young adults to business professionals. Its mission is “to empower and motivate young people to achieve academic, career and personal success through transformative learning experiences.”
Students who participate in Educurious are given the opportunity to practice real-world interactions with business professionals. They’re given the chance to ask questions of business mentors to learn how to apply their skills to the world that comes post-schooling.
As part of Educurious, Rachel and I recently visited a high school as part of a group of 15 other business professionals. We conducted mock interviews with high school students to give them a sense of what to expect as they transition from high school to the professional world.
I look forward to continuing to volunteer with great organizations such as Educurious! Giving back to the community is an incredibly rewarding experience and is just one way to help make our home that much better.
