As part of our commitment to help educate middle and high school students about the different career paths in accounting, the VSCPA launched a grassroots campaign called CPAs in the Classroom.
This initiative is a great way to grow your leadership skills and give back to your community! We now have two ways for you to get involved with CPAs in the Classroom— you can schedule your own visit like Brian tells us below or search existing opportunities near you. Scroll down to find out how you can get involved!
"I scheduled a classroom visit with a former high school teacher within 24 hours, and they were very excited to have an alumni speak to their business students. I would encourage all CPAs to take advantage of this program because teachers are looking for real world stories to share with their students."
— Brian Benson, CPA, VSCPA Member since 2017
