Junior Achievement's Interactive Lessons Exceed Students' Expectations

When a high school class from California High School in San Ramon, California heard they were going to have Junior Achievement volunteers in their classroom, the students didn't really know what to expect.

But when four JA volunteers from Summit Financial Group arrived in the classroom, imparted their experience with the students and led interactive lessons, the students quickly learned the value of JA. The volunteers from Summit helped the high school students make a connection between what they were learning in school and how it can be applied in the real world.

"I really enjoyed the programs. Our presenters were very energetic and seemed to be genuinely glad to be there teaching us," one student said. "I learned a lot and now feel less overwhelmed about what the future holds. I also got some great advice on different things to do that will make paying for college a little easier."

Another student added, "I learned a lot, I now know where and when to invest, how much is needed to diversify my investments, and how essential it is to protect my identity and how to keep track of my spending habits. This great week of teaching from Summit Financial and Junior Achievement taught my classmates and me so much helpful information that will prepare us for our futures."
