How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

Creating a captivating resume that sparkles bright enough to catch an employer's attention is an art on its own terms.

With the ramp up pressure kids experience at school and the need to sign up to too many extracurricular activities, it’s no surprise how the number of teens employed have been declining over the past decades.
There are many benefits (and risks) of adolescent employment. The decision to allow your teen to have an after school job should be a well thought-out family decision based on how well they can manage responsibilities, time management and money.

The Little Lemon Makes it to the Big Screen! #StandWithMe To Premier in Atlanta

"Make a Stand could not just raise money to end child slavery, but create a role model for all business."  
The New York Times

Make a Stand is a shining example of what one person can do. After seeing a photo of two enslaved boys, 8 year-old Vivienne Harr "made a stand" at her lemonade stand for 365 days straight. 


Her moment became a movement. People around the world stood with Vivienne and helped her raise over $100,000 for Not For Sale. Remarkably, Vivienne surpassed her goal…after 173 straight days of selling lemonade. It captured hearts around the world—and redefined what each of us can do. The moment became a movement--and a better way of doing business.

When you purchase Make a Stand Lemon-aid, you are voting for fair-trade business practicesand freedom for all. You are making a stand and having a positive impact on our world. 

They give 5% of all gross revenues to hand-selected organizations that do leading work in eradicating child slavery. On first glance, that may not sound like a lot, but as the company grows, it will be. If every corporation in America gave 5% of total revenues (not just profits), that would be roughly $1 trillion every year.

Fair Trade is a simple way to make every purchase matter. When you buy a product with the Fair Trade Certified™ label, you know that the farmers and workers who produced it were paid better prices and wages, work in safe conditions, protect the environment, and earn community development funds to empower and improve their communities. ~Fair Trade USA.

Vivienne and her mother illustrated a beautiful children's book that is now available. A feature length-documentary film titled: #standwithme about Vivienne's story will air in theaters across America. The Atlanta Premiere will be on February 27! Vivienne will also host a new network TV series tentatively-titled "Kid MissionPossible” (produced by Endemol, the world's largest independent production company). She will be a speaker at Wisdom 2.0 Summit in February, 2014.
