Friday, February 22, Atlanta CEO Council members will spend a half day at Griffin Middle School in Cobb County teaching students the Junior Achievement Entrepreneurship program. By donating a few hours of time, Council executives have the chance to inspire and educate youngsters on starting and running a business. Junior Achievement provides materials and guest “teachers” enrich it with personal experiences and stories.
What does this mean to a student who participates in a Junior Achievement program?
- 90% of students say they plan to graduate from High School.
- 88% of middle school students say they understand the concept of a budget
- 87% of high school students believe being a part of JA will help them secure a good job.
