On Saturday, October 6, more than 100 high school students gathered at Nova Southeastern University for the annual JA Fellows Retreat. The students discovered more about what it takes to conceptualize, capitalize and manage their own small businesses. 

Special thanks to the mentors and business professionals who presented and helped students learn more about communication, financial management, problem solving, collaboration and other skills they will use to be successful in the program and in the future. T hey were: Jordan Barrocas of Three Jerks Jerky ; Zach Morrison of Elite SEM ; Alexandra Llerena from Kellogg School of Management ; David Maymon of Advocate Home Care Services ; Peter Anderson of Raymond James; Bob Arroyo of Pollo Tropical ; Joe Schumacker of SpareZ Bowling; and Violet Lowrey from Keiser University. Also special thanks to NSU for hosting the retreat!

When asked what they enjoyed about the day, students said: 

"The entrepreneurs giving advice and telling stories."  "The speakers because they provided us with a lot of key ideas that we have to think about while starting a business."  "Learning how to make my product the best it can be."  "The breakout sessions about management, finances and other topics were interesting."
