TCC Northwest campus hosts EWMS students for JA in a Day event

More than 300 students from Ed Willkie Middle School spent the day at Tarrant County College's Northwest campus on Friday, November 4, where they participated in JA in a Day — a Junior Achievement program. Employees of Tarrant County College volunteered to present the engaging JA secondary curriculum over the course of five hours during the school day. Students participated in interactive lessons that focused on topics such as entrepreneurship, financial literacy, career planning, and workplace readiness.
Although the Junior Achievement curriculum is traditionally presented once per week for five weeks, this one-day event is a great way to impact the lives of students while providing local community members with a team-building and morale boosting experience. 
Junior Achievement is a nonprofit organization created to inspire youth to dream about their future and prepare them to succeed in a global economy. Through Junior Achievement's program offerings, students develop the skills they need to experience the realities and opportunities of work and entrepreneurship in the 21st Century global marketplace.
