    Argyle Middle School is looking for businesses to be a “client” for a small group of students. This will require one or two people from your organization to be the main point of contact and to work with the students sporadically throughout the school year. There will be a networking/match-making event sometime in November where you will be paired with your student group and then we’ll be doing an expo in late-Spring whether the students will showcase the final products.

    If you would like to participate, please contact Elyssa Jeter at elyssa.jeter@ja.org or 703-426-1561.

    A program at Argyle Middle School, a technology magnet school, called the Capstone program.  Students in grade 8 form groups and utilize Junior Achievement curriculum to create  small businesses.  We pair them up with a business or non-profit who meets with the students to discuss a solution to a problem they would like to be solved through technology, or a technology-related product they would like produced.  The students spend the year in development and deliver it at the end of the school year.

    There is no cost for the companies or non-profit organization and represents only about 6 hours of a person's time over the course of the school year.  If the companies like and use the technology product we create, we pass over ownership over to the company or non-profit organization so they can use it.

    To read all about the program, click  Argyle ASK.docx, and if you have any questions, contact Peter Daddone who is the coordinator of the program.

    Thanks to Marcia Custer for representing Montgomery County's Senior Connection at our April meeting.
    Marcia explained that for almost twenty years The Senior Connection of Montgomery County, Inc. has provided free volunteer services to our older residents.
    There is a growing need for people to volunteer to drive seniors to doctor's appointments, grocery shopping and on other errands, as well as help with other tasks. Unfortunately growing demand for these services has outpaced the addition of new volunteers.

    Please consider giving two – three hours per week to help out. It will make a big difference to you and to the people you serve. 

    For more information, please contact Marcia Custer at 301-962-0820301-962-0820 X14, or download an application on the website at:
