Volunteer with high school students this summer

Not in high school, but want to come back to camp? Volunteer this summer!

Minnesota Business Venture (MBV) offers short term term volunteer opportunities where you can positively influence the lives of many students. MBV introduces students who are dreaming of starting their own business, searching for career direction, heading for college, or just eager to enter the workforce to new skills and career choices. MBV is an opportunity for engaged students to meet and work with business professionals like you in a college setting.

Mock Interviewer

As a Mock Interviewer, you will sit down one on one with students and conduct a brief interview, followed by feedback to help them improve. Numerous interviews will be conducted over a 90 minute period. Volunteers are briefed and provided with sample questions.

We are seeking professional financial planners and/or advisors to lead a small group of students in discussions about the importance of effective financial planning. Volunteers are briefed and provided with curriculum for this hour long session.

Business Plan Judge

Throughout the week at MBV students work in groups called “companies” to create a business plan for a hypothetical product of their own design. Each group presents their marketing, operations and financial plan at the end of the week to a panel of judges. Participating as a judge is an excellent opportunity for you to see what students learn at MBV, and to give feedback to the students on the business plan that they have worked hard to create.
