“Junior Achievement is a non-profit organization financed through local businesses, foundations, government and individuals. JA is dedicated to providing relevant and innovative programs that inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Since its founding in 1919, Junior Achievement has contributed to the business and economic education of millions of young people around the world.” (Junior Achievement, Guide for Volunteers, 2011) We are very lucky to host numerous Junior Achievement volunteers at Eshleman.
The content of this study is focused on 21st learning skills and great value to our students. Mr. Brent Shirk is the vice president of finance for the Eastern Alliance Insurance Group and our 5th grade Junior Achievement representative. Please ask your child about these lessons.
