Communications and High Tech Industry Challenge
Junior Achievement (JA) is perpetuating our country’s economic strength and increasing individual prosperity by implementing programs taught by business volunteers in K-12th grade classrooms, but the demand from Colorado educators far outweighs our supply of volunteers. To close the gap, JA is partnering with companies in the communication and high tech industry to engage more volunteers by challenging each other and their employees to get involved.
The real winners of this friendly competition are the students who will benefit from having a competitive advantage when they enter the workforce. Young people need to be made aware of the career opportunities in high-growth sectors such as STEM. That is why JA engages volunteers who are currently working in STEM fields to facilitate its programs and share their personal work experiences, providing students with real-world examples of such careers.
