Throughout 2015, members of EisnerAmper Ireland volunteered with the Junior Achievement Ireland (JAI) Programme. JAI is part of a worldwide organisation reaching out to 9.3 million young people each year, encouraging young people to remain in education while helping them to develop important skills needed to succeed in a changing world. The programme operates across primary and secondary school level education and fosters a spirit of enterprise within participating schools.
Three members of EisnerAmper Ireland participated in the Autumn term programme which involved six in-class lessons over three months. Niamh Hickey (pictured above) completed the programme at St. Tiernan’s Community School, Ballally. Topics covered during her lessons included success skills, building on teamwork skills and interpersonal communication through group discussions, and how these transferable skills can be applied in the working world.
EisnerAmper Ireland looks forward to participating in the Junior Achievement Ireland Programme in 2016, with volunteers from EisnerAmper Ireland participating in several schools across Dublin.
