BENEFITING: Junior Achievement of Arizona, Inc.
Moss Adams is teaming up with Junior Achievement of Arizona to prepare the next generation of producers and consumers to take their place in our free market economy. By focusing on education, economics and youth development, Junior Achievement’s programs are contributing to the vitality of our communities and the availability of a well-educated workforce.
Taking on the sponsorship of 140 students at Dunbar Elementary means raising a total of $5,000. Moss Adams volunteers will receive training, support and all curriculum materials from JA to teach the students how education, careers, spending, and investing impact their communities and their lives as young adults. JA’s curriculum has a strong message that demonstrates the economic benefits of staying in school.
Eighty-nine percent of the students at Dunbar are minority and more than 88% are eligible for the National School Lunch Program, an indicator of their socio-economic background (families of four with an income less than $30,000) - and they are at greater risk of dropping out of school.
