Junior Achievement has a positive impact in lives and with our economy improving societal issues. We have a significant role today, with helping educators teach remotely. We are building and reaching even more students in low-income areas today in many school districts, which has long-term impact.
During the pandemic stay-home period, our team excelled with remote learning; helping educators with Google Classroom, and through MS Teams. We didn't slow down on our outreach, and this past school year, we reached over 154,000 students with over 1/3 engaged with remote learning. We feel great having a significant role today, and it's expanding in the upcoming school year.
