Experience Details

We are looking for business mentors who will volunteer for one week advising a group of high school students through a business simulation. The business mentor plays a key role by interacting with and guiding a student company throughout the week. The students will directly benefit from the real world business experiences that business advisors can provide and will share. You don’t need to have a business degree or be an accountant! The ACES team is on-site and will present the information to the students. As an advisor, you are there to guide, mentor and encourage.

Business advisors are partnered with a teacher in the classroom and together they guide the students through the week, sharing experiences and culminating in competitions with a “Top Company” being named at the end of the week.
Connecting with your local school in this way is a good opportunity to open up lines of communication between the business and education communities. You will also be able to network with other volunteer business advisors throughout the week. Most important, is the satisfaction of helping students gain a better understanding of their future in the workforce, career exploration and personal growth.

Experience Requirements

The business advisor is a volunteer who is willing and able to spend Monday through Friday from approximately 7:30 am until 3:00 pm (the entire school day) with a group of 15-18 students in the 12th grade. Previous commitments such as appointments or meetings can be accommodated, as long as the advisor can be there the majority of the time.

Both teacher and volunteer advisors will be required to attend a training session that will provide the advisors with the information that they will need to know during the program. This training session is usually held the Friday before the program, at the school.
