Supporting a group like Virtual Enterprise Int'l (VEI) is easy because once you volunteer to judge a live business competition (think Shark Tank!), you feel inspired.

Now in 400+ schools and reaching 12,000 students around the world, VEI is also a fascinating volunteer opportunity for a business professional who would like to be a judge or coach a virtual business team.
