The first time Lisa DeCrease met the 9-year-old girl she had been paired with in a unique, school-based business and academic program, “It was a little awkward,” she said.

The girl — we’ll call her “Essie” — was reserved and cautious.

“In the beginning we would spend a lot of time just playing games. And that’s kind of how we got the ball rolling … It probably took her about three months of me consistently meeting with her every week before it got to more of a ‘I’ll see you next week.’ A really exciting thing for both of us,” said DeCrease.
