The youth of the valley, and those who help them, received some well deserved attention.
It happened at the Junior Achievement awards dinner.
Tonight local business leaders, educators, volunteers, and entreprenuers received awards for their efforts. Many of them act as mentors to the children in the classroom. They teach the kids how to manage money, how to act in the workplace, and how to start a business. Children from kindergarten through 12th grade are eligible to learn from the Junior Achievement program.
Brett Taylor, Junior Achievement district manager said, “I think theres some people who don’t get a pat on the back, and we want to share what they are doing to help out are community and the work they do with Junior Achievement.”
They are always looking for volunteers. If you are interested in getting involved you can go here for more information.
