Hilary Feyereisen is no stranger to volunteering. The Clinton Complex engineer is passionate about teaching Junior Achievement, a nonprofit organization that brings the real world to students through hands-on curriculum delivered by a trained classroom volunteer.
Tell us about Junior Achievement?
We talk about families, communities, and entrepreneurship. It’s incredible to hear about these topics from the mind of a first grader!
Why is Junior Achievement important to you?
It’s a privilege to speak to such young students about things like kindness, education, and their aspirations. Any opportunity to reinforce a child’s worth and potential should be taken.
Why do you think it is important to volunteer your time?
Volunteering is an opportunity for me to pay it forward to all of the adults who helped me succeed as a child. Time is the most precious thing we have – once it’s gone, you can’t get it back!
