“Volunteering for Junior Achievement is one of the greatest things I do each year.
Teaching our youth about financial literacy is very important, especially in today's economy.
It's a very good feeling to walk into the class room and feel like a 'rock star'.”
Angie Jarvis, Avery Hall Insurance -- JAES volunteer and board member
“The Junior Achievement Company Program is an excellent program for youth.
It absolutely gives them the guidance needed to start and maintain a business.
I highly recommend this program to anyone working with youth.”
James Holbrook, WCBOE's Project Success
“Teaching high school students the mechanics of developing and launching a business included so many "aha" moments – for them and for me.
It opened their eyes to the possibility of a future filled with engaging work that makes a difference.”
