It is never too early to teach financial literacy, entrepreneurial understanding, and work-readiness skills that will help students make smart decisions and inspire them to be successful. That's the philosophy of Junior Achievement, the largest international educational non-profit dedicated to providing educational tools and lessons for our future entrepreneurs and workforce.
Junior Achievement is a volunteer driven program that connects teachers and their classrooms with the local business community to deliver lessons from money management to how a business works.
This past school year, over 380 K-12 students in the Juneau School District took part in 18 Junior Achievement programs
The Juneau Junior Achievement Planning Committee-Bob Varness of Alaska Communications, Lance Stevens of Alaska USA FCU, Ted Quinn of Capital Office, and Brian Holst and Jessy Post of JEDC would like to thank the 30 volunteers and teachers for their tremendous support and contribution to our community's students.
