One answer to that question came to our last Kiwanis meeting to explain the JOB foundation. Jennifer Corey- Brost, founder and executive director of the foundation began by providing the history and organization of the program. Darvel Givens, program coordinator, shared some of the specifics about the program and its impact on Cedar Valley children. Each of these leaders has earned a Masters of Business Administration and it has been useful as they work with young people and teach them how they can avoid money pitfalls and achieve lifetime financial success. They also concentrate on how they can become contributing citizens who improve their respective communities. Many of our club members wished a similar student organization was available when they were young; since they had to learn it from the school of hard knocks. Written by Lynn Barnes
It was an enlightening experience to learn about the JOB Foundation and we wish them the best fortune in working with local children.
