5000 Role Models of Excellence Visit SmartBox

SmartBox hosted a job shadow experience for the young men with a focus on entrepreneurship. 

Through the presentation, students were able to gain leadership skills and were able to see how through mentoring and hard work, they too may one day have the opportunity of owning and growing their own business. 

The students enjoyed hearing about how SmartBox got started, learning trivia about various businesses and visiting a customer to see firsthand how the vending  process operates.  Of course, they enjoyed sampling the products.  The overall takeaway was that they now have hope that they can make a goal for themselves that can be achievable if they do the research and work hard. 

This was certainly among our most beneficial events this summer. Because of your presentation, we now have students who feel that with vision, mentoring and hard work, they too may one day realize the benefit of owning and growing their own business.
