Junior Achievement Receives Sam’s Club Grant
Junior Achievement of Central Maryland has announced it has received a $20,000 grant from the Sam’s Club Giving Program to support the JA BizTown facility, a site-based entrepreneurship learning opportunity for local students. Sam’s Club Giving Program presented the grant, one of three nationwide, in support of its nationwide focus on small business, which includes igniting the entrepreneurial spirit in today’s youth.
Students attend the day-long JA BizTown experience after completing 22 classroom lessons. At the fully interactive, simulated town facility, students connect what they learn in school with situations found in the real world.
