Who and What:
Junior Achievement’s business class students will practice their pitches in front of volunteers from AYC. Audience members will be invited to participate in the coaching by giving them score cards they can fill out as they watch the pitches.
Given the number of teams and students, 20-30 volunteers would be ideal for this event. All volunteers will be required to fill out and sign our Volunteer Code of Conduct and Social Media Release.
3:30p – 3:45p: Students arrive at the Lecture Hall and break into their pitch teams. Volunteers will arrive and be assigned their first team to coach. Approximately 20 pitch teams of 5-6 students based on class sizes.
3:45p – 4:30p: Volunteers coach the pitch teams
4:30p – 6:30p: Teams pitch their product or service to a panel of 5-8 volunteers for 5 minutes, with 3 minutes of feedback and questions.
