Camera Box’s very own Tammy and Geoff are taking time out of their busy schedules to teach others through the Junior Achievement Program!
Founded in 1919 by Theodore Vail, Horace Moses, and Senator Murray Crane the Junior Achievement program was initially started as an after school program for high-scholars. Junior Achievement is now a K-12, in school program that reaches over 4 million students annually. Their purpose is “to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.”
The program instructs children and young adults in areas such as financial literacy, entrepreneurship and experiential learning and prepares them for work-readiness.
Junior Achievement has over 171,000 volunteers that work in over 173,000 classrooms nationwide. In order for the program to run properly and be able to reach the students a partnership with the business community is necessary. If you are a professional in the business community and are interested in giving time or resources to Junior Achievement please visit their website for more information!
