We are honored to have guest presenters from our local businesses!!!  Throughout each 9 weeks guest speakers will present 6 lessons focused on:  

▲    JA It’s My Future® provides practical information about preparing for the working world while still in middle school.

▲    JA Economics for Success® provides practical information about personal finance and the importance of identifying education and career goals based on a student’s skills, interests, and values.

▲    JA Global Marketplace® provides practical information about the global economy and its effect on students’ lives.  Students explore six key aspects of the global economy.

▲    JA America Works® provides students with examples of how business and entrepreneurship affected the economic development of the United States during the 19thcentury.

Junior Achievement’s secondary education programs provide practical economic and career education to students in grades six through twelve. A business volunteer from the community teaches the class using a course outline and support materials provided by JA. The volunteer leads the class in thought provoking discussion and group activities that actively illustrate the material.
