JA PROGRAM INITIATIVES

High School Heroes

Junior Achievement students from area high schools are using their learned presentation and leadership skills by volunteering in Junior Achievement elementary schools classrooms. Two new schools, Derby High School and Bassick High School, became mentor-heroes this year!

LinkedIn Workshop

Derby, Bethel and Central high schools participated in a workshop that introduced students to creating a thorough and engaging LinkedIn profile, as well as effective strategies for building their personal brand.

Innovation Day

High school students became innovators at this one-day event.  They learned how to utilize skills such as teamwork, collaboration, critical thinking and brainstorming to develop innovative solutions to today's problems.
