Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore Preparing Youth for Key Economic Issues
As an adult, have you ever had those moments when you stop and think to yourself, “I wish someone would have told me that” or “I wish I knew then what I know now” moments?
There is a group on Delmarva that’s working hard to prevent our youth from finding themselves in too many situations like that. The President of Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore, Jayme Hayes, joins us in Historic Studio D to talk about Junior Achievement’s goal of preparing youth for the future.
Jayme says this program is designed to teach elementary school students their roles as individuals, workers, and consumers, and to prepare middle and high school students for key economic issues they may face. The programs span from kindergarten to 12th grade students and the Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore reaches over 6,000 students each year in both public and private classrooms.
Junior Achievement also teaches young people the importance of staying in school. They do offer two programs available on the internet as well. Jayme says the impact this program has on students has been amazing.
They have an event coming up where you as a member of the community can help our students succeed. The Junior Achievement Ladies Night 2018 is Feb. 9 at 6 pm at the Fountains in Salisbury, Md. There will be a fashion show, music, shopping and more at the event. Get your ticket here.
