Making Summer Count For College And Yourself
This post was written by our friends at forbes.com
Yesterday I read about an 11-year old boy who started his own business bringing neighbors’ trash cans and recycling bins to the curb. He charged them $.25 and by the end of his first week had made $1.75. Another article documented a 10-year old, inspired by learning about recycling in school, who has started his own recycling business, donating 25% of his profits to the homeless. Not yet in high school, they are already demonstrating the qualities colleges look for in applicants: initiative, imagination, commitment, community involvement and concern for others.
