JA Celebrates Partnership with Educators Credit Union

On Thursday, June 2, staff and board members from Educators Credit Union celebrated their partnership with Junior Achievement during the official ribbon cutting of the Educators Credit Union Wellness shop in JA BizTown. During the ceremony, the mayor of JA BizTown also declared June 2, 2016, Educators Credit Union Day.

The partnership between Educators and Junior Achievement includes the storefront in JA BizTown, tablets and debit cards used by students in JA Finance Park, as well as teacher training and support of Junior Achievement in Racine County.

“Junior Achievement for many, many years has been working with our local schools to make sure that our young people can bridge what they’re learning in the classroom to the real world,” said Tim Greinert, president of Junior Achievement of Wisconsin. “Financial literacy couldn’t be a more important skill for our young people today.”

A big thank you to Educators Credit Union for their support of JA.
