Students from 45 area schools benefit from the increased motivation and self-esteem, adult role models, career exploration opportunities and curriculum enrichment.

Businesses benefit from an enhanced image, increased community awareness of business goals and issues, and the intrinsic rewards derived from sharing time and talent.  The program currently has over 60 actively participating businesses.

The entire community benefits by an improved and healthier school system and the realization that quality education is the responsibility of both business and education communities.
