As part of EisnerAmper Ireland’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme, the Firm annually takes part in Junior Achievement Ireland (JAI), with both trainees and senior staff members assisting young people to develop the skills they need to succeed in a changing world. Today, Yvonne Skelly and Aileen Dowling from JAI, came into our office to present certificates to our staff members that have completed their Junior Achievement volunteering and present information to our new members of staff who could take part in the upcoming term after Christmas.
Vignesh Iyer, Senior in Financial Services, completed his volunteering term in Our Lady’s Girls N.S, which involved teaching 4th class students as part of their ‘Our Nation’ programme. The ‘Our Nation’ programme helps students learn about making wise business decisions through a board-game. The programme involved visiting the school and teaching five lesson plans over a number of weeks.
Junior Achievement Ireland (“Junior Achievement”) is part of a worldwide organisation reaching out to over 10 million young people each year. Junior Achievement aims to inspire and motivate young people to realise their potential by valuing education and understanding how to succeed in the world of work. This programme is operated in both primary and secondary schools and fosters a spirit of enterprise within participating schools.
Our trainees are involved in all elements of practice management from day one, including engaging and working closely with those in our community. From the outset, trainees work closely with partners and senior management to deliver services to our key markets. This approach facilitates our trainees getting hands on experience while also developing the core awareness, knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed in their careers.
