Junior Achievement's Chick-fil-A Foundation Discovery Center
Wednesday, January 9, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (EST)
Junior Achievement of Georgia, in partnership with Atlanta Public Schools, DeKalb County Schools, Fulton County Schools and the Chick-fil-A Foundation, is announcing plans to open a state-of-the-art financial literacy center and career readiness center that will impact 30,000 metro Atlanta middle school students.
This experiential learning program will provide a 360-degree educational experience that begins in the classroom and culminates with a day at the interactive simulation venues, JA BizTown and JA Finance Park.
True learning comes from doing, and when given the right tools, there are no bounds to the potential of our young.
Join us as we lead the financial literacy and career development movement in Atlanta. Together, we will equip the next generation of leaders with the knowledge, capacity and motivation to become financially independent, building a better future for themselves and their community.
