Speaker Topic

JA curriculum + a few hours of your time = an empowered future for young people in our community. Junior Achievement enhances the relevancy of education by combining real world topics with the local experience to teach K-12 students about workforce readiness, financial literacy and entrepreneurship. Each year, JA reaches more than 4,000 students in SW Michigan with these lessons. With your support, even more are possible! We have the opportunity for you to make a difference.

Speaker Biography

Jenny is a lawyer by education, a small business person by upbringing and a third grade teacher by personality (but not patience level). Combining a small business work ethic, the ability to communicate within the business world with the opportunity to help guide the future trajectory for thousands of young people is a dream come true. Over the past five years working with JA in a 5-county Michiana region, Jenny has been lucky enough to witness JA's reach increase from 6500 students to more than 26,000 this school year! Jenny lives in Mishawaka but attended school at the University of Michigan and considers the State of Michigan as much of a home as Indiana.
