From Kip Hanks:
KRE has been asked to volunteer a day (arrive 8am, usually done by 2pm at the latest) at Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans again this summer. It was a positive experience for those of us who did it last year. In summary, you help a group of 3-5 early high school-aged NOLAians learn about fiscal responsibility. Make a difference in a young person’s life. Depending on how many of us can gather on the same day, it would be one day sometime between June 18 – July 3. Please let Kip Hanks know ASAP if you’re interested: Here’s a link to a program brochure that will give you more details: JA-Finance-Park-Program Overview_Color.pdf (330k)
