“At Junior Achievement, we value  partnering with members of the community to deliver our core curriculum of financial literacy, career and college readiness, and entrepeneurship,” said Stacy McDonald, Program Manager at Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest. “We believe that our students, our communities and our global economy grow stronger when more voices and experiences are shared.
