The Answer is...Volunteer 

Walnut Creek Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau
Education Committee presents
 
#WhatWouldYouDo
Ethic Fails and How to Avoid Them

A rewarding volunteer opportunity.   
 
#WhatWouldYouDo?       The      Chamber's Education Committee    will pose this question to a group of middle school students on Friday, December 1 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The program, formally known as Ethics Day,    is an extremely popular and rewarding experience for participating students and volunteers. This unique experience offers direct interaction between students, business leaders, educators, and government officials as they ask each other "What Would You Do?" to a series of timely case studies in right and wrong  Participants will discuss current issues to consider how to form ethical values, resolve ethical conflicts, and to identify potential long-term effects of various decisions.  It also promotes actively listening to the perspectives of others.

To learn more about the program and how you can participate,  please contact
