Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We Solve Problems was created to provide a truly innovative event for our community, in which business leaders share in the responsibility of teaching business skills to students while simultaneously facilitating possible solutions to a problem. By creating an essay contest, we aim to benefit students in the following ways: to train students and incentivize them to optimize two sets of skills, problem-solving and persuasive communication; facilitate productive, friendly competition to teach students goal-setting and achievement; reward students’ efforts by providing them with school recognition, community recognition, resume-building opportunities and a cash award or scholarship; to have business leaders, who will be future employers of the students, train them now on essential problem solving and communication skills.
For the 3rd year in a row, The Gertsburg Law Firm and The Chagrin Valley Chamber of Commerce are teaming up for a one-of-a-kind essay contest. This year, 6000 students from 7 high schools will try to solve a real-world problem in a well-written essay.
