What do you wish you had been taught in school, but weren’t? How to manage money? How what you learned in school might apply to a future job?
Junior Achievement (JA) is launching a new awareness campaign that focuses on helping kids connect what they learn in school and life outside the classroom. “Take Flight” is a PSA campaign that illustrates how Junior Achievement can help today’s students achieve their dreams of tomorrow, whether these dreams mean finding their ideal career, being able to buy a home, or starting their own business.
Each year, Junior Achievement learning experiences reach more than 2.5 million young people in grades K through 12. These learning experiences are delivered by thousands of volunteers, primarily from the business community, who teach proven programs focused on financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship.
The “Take Flight” campaign includes one 30-second television Public Service Announcement (PSA) and three 15-second PSAs. The PSAs feature students turning their dreams of youth into reality as adults. The campaign is launching in January 2022 and is intended to run throughout the year.For more information, visit www.ja.org.
