This is a mentoring program that pairs employee volunteers from Berkeley Electric Cooperative with a student selected by the school guidance department. The volunteer and student have lunch together at the school each month for the length of the school term where they discuss a wide variety of topics from school work to the student’s favorite past times. Each student must have their parent's or guardian’s permission to participate in the program.
Help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.
