Students at Saint Mary Magdalen Catholic School in Brentwood participated in Junior Achievement Day recently.
Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy.
Volunteers from the St. Louis chapter presented age-level programs in each classroom, from kindergarten through eighth grade.
These educators are local Schnucks’ employees who volunteer their time to assist Junior Achievement with the presentations. The hands-on programs are intended “To inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy,” according to JA’s mission statement.
