Review for Junior Achievement of Western Massachusetts, Inc., Springfield, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became involved with Junior Achievement in 1980 and have served in a number of capacities including Board Member, Board Chair, acting President, and volunteer. I was also fortunate to have been part of a Junior Achievement company a student growing up in northern New Jersey. JA's current tagline "empowering young people to own their economic success" is a fitting statement for the amazing work this organization does to bring superior economic education to youngsters from K to 12....delivered by hundreds of business volunteers across western Massachusetts. I have personally watched as Junior Achievement's classroom efforts turn students from a "lackluster " approach to education into an excited, participating and achieving youngster. Finally, JA is the perfect vehicle to help raise the financial literacy level of our youngsteers. I am honored to have been a part of this exciting program for thirty plus years.
