"Every Tuesday we go over one skill, and each group has a side project," Zuckerberg told Wired. "When the class ends, they’ll come to Facebook and sell the products they’ve made, like they’re marketing them." Zuckerberg did not divulge the precise location of his teaching gig, but the Mercury News published a January article describing the entrepreneur's involvement in a class for middle school students at the local Boys and Girls Club.
"It's an amazing experience for the kids. It's one of the most exciting business people spending time with them," Peter Fortenbaugh, executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of the Penninsula, told the Mercury News.
This year the CEO wants to meet a new person every day--outside his social network, that is. Zuckerberg told Fortune, "I'm meeting one new person outside of Facebook every day. Who doesn't work at Facebook. It's going well--I've done a bunch of things in the community and just tried to get broader exposure."
