American Honda Finance Corporation partnered with JA USA to bring JA programs to thousands of students. JA of Chicago was one of the grantees. Honda's grant sponsored 5 JA programs at Elgin High School, including JA Personal Finance. Here is what some of the educators had to say about JA and this impactful program:
"It’s good for my students to hear about the various career paths and options from other adults. Each speaker brings value to my students and a way of envisioning their futures."
"Students need to hear from other adults in order to have a vision of their lives. What the speakers say reinforces the messages I send every day."
"Students get to see successful adults other than their teachers or coaches. They get to see success first hand and learning valuable life lessons in the process."
"I think the lesson about them planning their budget and surviving on their own will help students immensley. I think the students got a lot out of it!"
