We are determined to develop the next generation of career ready, financially responsible citizens.
The mission of the Junior Workforce Academy is to prepare our future generation to compete for employment. We introduce workplace skills that employers seek. Participants are exposed to preparing resumes, interview strategies, responding to work, how to read a check and the importance of saving.
Studies have shown that students who participate with career training and are educated about personal finances are more likely to achieve higher levels of educational attainment, employment, income and entrepreneurship.
