Economics for Success
Economics for Success encourages middle and high school students to Take a Closer Look at the advantages of staying in school and at how the choices they make can positively impact their future dreams, aspirations and outcomes.
By outlining the link between education and personal goals, and by providing participants with the knowledge, attitudes and skills they will need for long-term career success, Economics for Success helps students explore and manage their job and career choices.
This interactive program is facilitated by one or more business volunteers, in collaboration with the classroom teacher, and a complete program kit is provided, containing all the tools and resources necessary for classroom delivery.
As part of their ongoing commitment to provide advice and custom financial solutions for youth and their families, Economics for Success was developed in partnership with RBC Financial Group (www.rbc.com/family).
With the support of Accenture, Junior Achievement developed an Economics for Success interactive tool for students. The tool allows students to understand how the financial and environmental decisions they make can impact their life. Click here to experience the online tool.
