Greensboro, North Carolina — As part of the JA Economics for Success Program, Allie Petrova taught four classes of seventh graders at Aycock Middle School in downtown Greensboro. The school hosted a group of volunteers from the Greensboro Chapter of the Society of Financial Service Professionals. Attorneys, CPAs and financial planners visited with the students for a morning of financial literacy and career oriented discussions.
The students learned how to set goals for their careers and financial future. Bringing the program content to life, Allie shared about her experience and the choices she made along her career path. The students played the Be a Success Game, which introduces students to real-life work and educational events. This interactive game connects personal finance, education and careers through a point system that rewards desirable choices.
JA Economics for Success is about teaching middle school students the fundamentals of a successful economic life: choosing the right career and managing money properly. Through the program, students explore their skills, interests, values and the world of work to make informed education, career and life decisions. Junior Achievement, an organization that empowers young people to own their economic success, is the designer of the Program.
