JA's REAL Life, a Financial Literacy Forum Celebrates 100 Days

Over the past four years, since the creation of the REAL Life Program in 2014, Junior Achievement of South Central Pennsylvania has reached 21,684 high school students with its REAL Life Program.  Thousands upon thousands of high school students have benefitted from the common sense and practical financial ‘know-how' covered by the REAL Life Program.  During the four years of REAL Life, over 3,600-business mentor volunteers have shared with students the importance of establishing a monthly budget, saving for a rainy day, 401Ks, the impact of personal credit score on finances, and so much more.  REAL Life volunteers share their time, talents, experience, and enthusiasm with area students.

Congratulations to Junior Achievement's REAL Life program, the hundreds of amazing business mentor volunteers who join us for each REAL Life event, our hard working and dedicated REAL Life program team, and the thousands of students who have had the amazing opportunity to participate in the REAL Life program.
