eMentor Field Trip
The Small Business Entrepreneurship travelled to United Health Group in Minnetonka, MN, on October 28, 2014, to meet their mentors. Nineteen students are participating in a 7-week program where they e-mail weekly on a guided topic, such as Teamwork, Work/Life Balance, and Academic Motivation. The students have been gaining another person’s perspective about what it is like to work in the “real” world. In addition to meeting their mentors, they enjoyed a tour and lunch. They were also given the opportunity to share their perspectives on what they have been learning. The eMentor program is sponsored by Best Prep, a non-profit organization that strives to connect the classroom with the business world.
