Do you know where your children are?
January 27, 2011
Last weekend Cindi and I had the opportunity to shoot the Accounting Career Awareness Program (ACAP) Winter Reunion. There’s a lot I could say about the organization, but a lot of what I could tell you could probably be told better via the googletron … that is, except for a few key facts that may not be readily apparant:
- Non-profits are dope
- The community makes the world go round
- Children-sized business casual is so gosh-darned cute
I first got involved with the organization 2 years ago, when I helped teach a course on building your resume. Since then, the saga’s continued, and ACAP’s continued to build momentum. This year we were able to get a mentorship program developed and launched. Next year, they’ll probably take over a small unmapped Caribbean island. Big-ups to the kids, counselors, the board, and all volunteers that pay it forward, with ACAP or with any other community org.
And big-ups to the kids once more. They don’t have to participate in a program that requires you to step outside your comfort zone, give up a week of your summer and a Friday night in the winter, and challenge yourself to learn more about something as dry as corporate America. They choose to, when it would be much easier not to, and they have fun while doing it.
