Feeling the Rhythm with Junior Achievement

JA Launch Lesson took center stage in Mr. McHugh’s Entrepreneurial Class this past November of 2017. Brian Harris and Owen McCarthy of MedRhythms, a Maine-based music-therapy company, taught 15 students the journey of starting a company.

Mc. McHugh, the classroom teacher, stated, “It went great- speakers were passionate about their business, students were engaged and asked questions—would highly recommend this to any teacher.”

The students took to the entrepreneurial lessons as the two speakers answered questions they had about business ownership.

“I thought those two were awesome...” commented a student, “They came in and had a really fantastic presentation which made me become very interested in what they were doing. Their progress so far is very inspiring and completely changed my outlook on starting your own business. Not for yourself, but for others.”

JA Launch Lesson is a program that is delivered by local community entrepreneurs where students gain firsthand knowledge about starting a business and the entrepreneurial journey. This 50-minute educational lesson provides a highly engaging experience for students, volunteers and the classroom educators.
