A close friend of mine works for a really special non-profit called Junior Achievement.
The Q+DD on Junior Achievement:
Junior Achievement is the only organization focused on economic, education, and workforce development. We believe that inspiring and preparing Georgia’s young people to succeed in a global economy will result in a skilled workforce that will allow Georgia’s business community to flourish and grow. We strive to impact tomorrow’s business and community leaders by bridging the gap between the business and education communities, encouraging Georgia’s youth to set long term career goals and showing them the value of education. Our turn-key curriculum aligns to the Georgia Performance Standards, enhancing what students are learning in the classroom with real world examples and hands-on application of knowledge.
Junior Achievement of Georgia partners with corporations, organizations, schools, and individuals concerned about the success of our students and our state. Our volunteer-led programs teach K-12 students about business and entrepreneurship, personal financial literacy, and workforce readiness. Volunteers share their personal and business experience to bring JA curriculum to life, helping students understand the real-world application of what they are learning in school. This added relevancy inspires and prepares young people to succeed in a global economy.
Pretty amazing, right?
