Student Initiatives

Share the Rewards of the Profession

Connect with the next generation of CPAs!  Mentor aspiring accounting students, and help them learn more about the license and the variety of career paths available to them.

Classroom Volunteers
MOCPA members are invited to volunteer to discuss the rewards of the CPA profession in classrooms, Beta Alpha Psi meetings, and career fairs. The time commitment is minimal, with sessions often lasting an hour or less, but many volunteers find the experience worthwhile and choose to expand their involvement. By sharing their successes, career and educational paths, and words of wisdom, these CPAs are helping their community learn about the value of the profession.

Job Shadowing
You can also volunteer to host students at your firm or company for a job shadowing experience. Job shadowing brings the real world to potential future CPAs. A "hands-on" experience is the most valuable lesson a student can have.

If you have any questions, or if you would like to get involved through your local MOCPA chapter, please contact Liz Schaetzel at (800) 264-7966 or lschaetzel@mocpa.org.
