The Provo/Orem Chamber of Commerce is teaming with Utah County schools and Junior Achievement in seeking classroom volunteers from the business community.
"One of the most important things we can do as business people is to teach students how businesses really function," said Steve Densley, president/CEO of the Chamber. "The business volunteers bring an experience to the classroom that we cannot duplicate."There are nearly 300 Junior Achievement classes throughout the county that need to be filled with business volunteers this year.
Junior Achievement's purpose is to educate youths to value free enterprise, business and economics to improve the quality of their lives. The program recruits volunteers from the business community to facilitate economic-oriented lessons for students from kindergarten through 12th grade.
