Junior Achievement & MassMutual Greater Washington

A new grant from Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) is increasing the number of Junior Achievement (JA) programs available to local elementary and middle-school students through the end of the 2012-2013 school year. Greater Washington was one of four JA Areas across the nation to benefit from MassMutual’s generous gift. The grant will help bring JA programs to more students across the United States and will help young people own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices.

Elementary and middle-school students will be the beneficiaries of the grant, which will help support four different JA programs. Additionally, MassMutual employees will serve as JA volunteers, teaching the JA curriculum and sharing their personal and professional experiences with students. The Junior Achievement mission is a direct correlation with MassMutual’s mission to help families become more confident in their financial decisions and empower them to take control of their financial situations. This new and exciting partnership will help empower more students to make a connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied to the real world.
