The VE Partnership Experience

Volunteer Testimonials

I was very excited to join this event as it helps many future leaders learn skills they normally would not in the classroom setting. The projects and events leverage the students' current education and allows them to connect this knowledge to real-world applications. Seeing the creativity of the students and the companies they put together sheds a positive light on this country's future! I truly wish I had this experience while I was a student.

I have my own history with tutoring and mentoring so I jumped onto see what VE was doing as soon as it fell into my inbox. It's always fun to see how fast these kids develop because it feels like they're doing more and more at younger ages. They are asking questions and thinking about things that I didn't consider until later in life.

My favorite part is working with some of the nicest, brightest, and hardest working people I have ever worked with: the students. After working a full career in business it has been a fantastic experience to study the basics of marketing and sales with these young minds.
