"My experience with Mrs. Allen's 3rd grade class at Shatekon Elementary School was very positive! The students were interested and provided logical answers that surprised me at times! I truly felt I made a difference in their lives! I must thank Mrs. Allen, who was a wonderful help and role model for me in her classroom."

"Once you volunteer one time, you're hooked. The children so enjoy the program."

Jacquelyn Dunlavey National Grid

"I fully enjoyed the experience with my 5th graders, they loved hearing stories of the “real world” work that I do and I learned lots from them. I felt I made a difference getting them to realize STEM careers can be really fun and interesting. Hopefully some of them decide to come to KAPL when they get out of college! "

Patra Madden Engineer, Bechtel / KAPL

"Thank you for all your support and that of this dynamic program. It is written to bring workplace readiness and financial concepts all together for middle school students. It’s always a pleasure to bring business and industry consultants into the classroom. Kids really enjoy it as they figure budgets and decide cash or credit and learn about the real work world. "

Mary Taylor Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher, Ballston Spa Middle School

"I had to let you know about my recent experience to SEFCU with Mrs. Taylor's Home and Career classes. It was bar none, the BEST Field trip I ever helped with. The people at SEFCU should be commended. They opened their business up to the children, in every way possible. The kids were so impressed. I was impressed! "
