For more than five years, members of EisnerAmper Ireland have 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 level schools and fosters a spirit of enterprise within participating schools.
Junior Achievement is celebrating its 20th year in Ireland and last June they gathered a group of fourth class students from St James’s School, Basin Lane, Dublin 8 to celebrate. Over the course of a morning, the group of students, with help from volunteers, used their budgeting skills to establish what they considered to be of value and importance in today’s society in the form of their ‘Children’s Budget’. The students then presented their budget to Minister for Children, Katherine Zappone TD on Wednesday 14 September. A short video has captured the student’s work which highlights the value of corporate contributions to JAI over the past 20 years.Latest News
