Junior ChamberWe are looking forward to a new and exciting collaboration with the Latino Chamber of Commerce and Madison School & Community Recreation (MSCR)!

Junior Chamber, which will be officially launched on January 29th, will allow students in our Puma Scholars after school program to work directly with Latino business leaders in the community to create a business plan of their own. The students will learn about small businesses, visit several Latino owned businesses in the area, and develop literacy and math skills along the way.

This project will culminate in an event called "Fish Tank" in which students will pitch their business ideas to local business people in the style of the popular TV show, "Shark Tank".

Thanks to Rachel Deterding, Eric Zuniga,and Jessica G. Cavazos for bringing this idea to life!
