On Dec. 10, 83 students, aspiring entrepreneurs and business leaders from Franklin High School served as volunteer role models for a day to 726 of Franklin Park School children through their participation in Junior Achievement of New Jersey’s High School Heroes service-learning program.

Through the program, the high school students are able to hone their presentation, time-management and public speaking skills. Prior to their visit to the elementary school, the high school students were trained to present JA’s financial literacy and work readiness materials to the youngsters.

Junior Achievement of New Jersey (JANJ) is dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. JA programs are delivered by corporate and community volunteers. They provide relevant, hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. JANJ is expected to reach 62,000 students in more than 80 school districts across the state during the 2015-2016 school year. For more information visit us at www.janj.org.
