AMG Supports Ingenuity and Perserverance
The philanthropic organizations AMG supports are continuing to provide services through this pandemic, and we applaud their ingenuity and perseverance. AMG is pleased to spotlight a few of these organizations over the coming weeks. Today, we invite you to learn more about Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain (JA). Through its programs and volunteers, JA helps eliminate barriers to educational success and shows the power of working together for mutual success!
The Impact of Junior Achievement Programs
JA’s research shows that students participating in its programs are more optimistic about achieving future success and feel they are personally in control of their destiny. “More than ever, students need hope and optimism for their future,” said Chris Silberman, Director of Communications for Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain. “JA’s virtual learning resources help accomplish this … when our traditional in-person programs are not possible.” So far, JA estimates that about 7,000 students in the Denver metro area will benefit for JA programs in their “at home” classrooms.
Online Resources are Available
As school after school began to move students to remote learning, Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain quickly pivoted and began offering free online resources for students learning from home. Students of all ages, their teachers, parents and guardians are benefitting from the organization’s ability to quickly offer a wealth of on-demand resources, a guide for teens on the financial impact of COVID-19, and digital versions of its traditional classroom programs. These traditional programs include web interviews with local volunteers, representing a variety of industries, speaking openly about their career path, education, overcoming challenges, and other unique insights all through the lens of the COVID-19 pandemic. We invite you to explore JA’s online resources today.
