Junior Achievement

Junior Achievement is a non-profit organization that brings the real world to students through hands-on curriculum delivered by trained local business people. The JA program fosters work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and uses experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential. Ms. Howanitz was awarded the Volunteer of the Year Award for recruiting over 40 local business professionals to teach the course to local middle schools.
