""I learned so much from my involvement with Junior Achievement in high school. The personal growth and self-confidence gained in those three short years continue to serve me today -- more than three decades later." "
"At first, I thought it was going to be very boring. But when you came in I was so excited. I wish you did not have to go but you must."
"I thought the experience was amazing. The presentation was unlike anything I've seen."
"I liked how the Junior Achievement volunteer explained his job to us."
