Just imagine it! A warm, sunny day, blue skies, lush greens and WHACK! the sound of a little white ball slicing through the County air. Mark your calendars! The Presque Isle Rotary Club is holding their 7th annual charity golf tournament to benefit the Aroostook County Chapter of Junior Achievement on Saturday, July 14, 2012. We’ve had tremendous success with our past tournaments with a cumulative total of $58,000 being raised for area charities. With an average of 30 teams competing on the links, this is a great advertising opportunity for your business. We look forward to the same, if not better, success this year!
Junior Achievement of Maine, Inc., founded in 1965, is a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to educating students in grades K-12 about entrepreneurship, work readiness, and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs in the classroom and in the workplace. In partnership with businesses, educators and volunteers, JA brings the real world to Maine students, opening their minds to their potential and preparing them for the world of work. Sequential, age-appropriate activities are designed for each grade level. The highly interactive curriculum stresses the relevance of education to the workplace, and helps prepare students for lifelong learning. Students get an understanding of the real working world from meeting and listening to our business volunteers – what company they work for, their occupation, their career paths and education. Junior Achievement volunteers are role models who deliver hands-on JA activities to students directly. We need to remember that one day these students will be knocking on our doors for employment. Have we prepared them well for that next step? This academic year, Junior Achievement of Maine has reached over 9,000 students from Aroostook County to York County.
Junior Achievement of Maine does not charge for the programs offered in or outside of the classroom. Funding for all operational costs and the costs to administer programs are derived through fundraising events, corporate and individual donations and foundation grants.
