This summer, I was lucky enough to do some volunteer business mentoring for the youth Summer Company program run through the local Small Business Center in Belleville. This is first time I’ve done any youth mentoring, and I have to say it was absolutely awesome.
Energy and enthusiasm just “radiated” from the program participants – so much so that I often wonder who got more from the arrangement, them or me? Because that boundless enthusiasm has a powerful invigorating effect on everyone it comes into contact with, including yours truly!
Long and short of it? I had a great time, and I thank the Small Business Center for considering me as a youth business mentor. I’d do it again in a heartbeat!
