Setting the Foundations for Future Leader

MAY 30, 2024

Our New York Associates recently partnered with Junior Achievement of New York to participate and volunteer in the JA in a Day program at PS310K Elementary School.

Located in Brooklyn’s Chinatown, PS310K: the School for Future Leaders, serves over 85% Asian new immigrant students from China, with 89% of the students receiving reduced lunch. Our dedicated associate volunteers spent the day teaching four 4th-grade classes using JA in Our Region curriculum, which introduces students to entrepreneurship and key learning objectives, including regions, resources, supply chains, and problem-solving.

Throughout the day, associate volunteers engaged with students to test their understanding of “What is a business?” and explored the impact of small businesses in New York. Both associate volunteers and students participated in discussions and activities to identify traits they already possess to become successful entrepreneurs.
