Community Highlight - Junior Achievement of Mid-Michigan

We are excited to run a monthly Quotes for a Cause campaign. Each month, our agency will be donating $5 per new business quote to a nonprofit or charitable organization, regardless of whether or not the policy is actually purchased.

In the month of December, we are partering with Junior Achievement (JA) of Mid-Michigan. They empower young people to own their economic success. Volunteer-based K-12 programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire kids to dream big and reach their potential. JA has programming starting early and continuing through high school:

  • ELEMENTARY PROGRAMMING -JA’s elementary school programs are the foundation of its K-12 curricula. Six sequential themes, each with five handson activities, work to change students’ lives by helping them understand business and economics.
  • MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAMMING - The middle grade programs build on concepts the students learned in Junior Achievement’s elementary school program and help teens make difficult decisions about how to best prepare for their educational and professional future. These programs supplement standard social studies curricula and develop communication skills that are essential to success in the world.
  • HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMMING - As high school students begin to position themselves for their future, there are many unanswered questions about what lies ahead. Junior Achievement’s high school programs help students make informed, intelligent decisions about their future, and foster skills.
