Junior Achievement

Over the past 20 years, thousands of students across the
Cayman Islands have benefited from the hands-on, interactive experience that is
Junior Achievement. This non-profit organisation brings together the business
community, educators and volunteers to teach the key concepts of work
readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy and inspires young people to
dream big.

 

To capture the very best of Junior Achievement’s record of
success, Junior Achievement Cayman has established an alumni association. The
association aims to maintain the connection between alumni and Junior
Achievement Cayman, encourage interaction among the Junior Achievement alumni
network, and raise funds for the organisation.

As past Junior Achievers, alumni are uniquely positioned to
give back to the community in a noble way. Life experiences, combined with an
intimate understanding of the programme, enable alumni to provide today’s
Junior Achievers with invaluable lessons and guidance. Additionally, Junior
Achievement advisors go beyond sharing the principles of market-based economics
by making an educational and motivational impact. Alumni bring an unmatched
level of passion and inimitable perspective to the programme and achievers.

Junior Achievement has provided
many individuals in the Cayman Islands community with a solid foundation for
their careers. Alumni have used their skills to become graphic design gurus,
motor mechanics, titans of tourism, first-class physicians, environmental
engineers, communications authorities, auditors and accountants, booming
business owners, music moguls … and the list goes on. The alumni association
provides past Junior Achievers with an environment to form new friendships and
business relationships through this special connection.

The Junior Achievement programme
requires not only research and development for its curriculum to maintain its
relevance to the world of today and tomorrow, but also the steady recruitment
of volunteers and the organisation of special events and initiatives. These
student-focused activities depend on the generosity of the Cayman Islands
community. The alumni association will assist with raising the Junior
Achievement profile and play an integral part in reaching out to today’s key
decision makers who were likely Junior Achievers as well. Junior Achievement is
a way to maximise the effect of charitable giving by preparing children for the
workforce, and donations to Junior Achievement are investments in the lives of
achievers who are the leaders of tomorrow.
