De Zavala students learn about business and money during JA in a Day
In honor of International Credit Union day which comes around every October, EECU partnered with Junior Achievement of the Chisholm Trail this past Wednesday to swarm Fort Worth ISD’s De Zavala Elementary School with a day of financial education.
If you’re not familiar with Junior Achievement, this nationwide program aims to equip students with knowledge to be professionally and financially successful after they leave school through programs and activities that bring money and business to life. Although the Junior Achievement program is normally spread out through several weeks, EECU opted to make a day of it with a special “JA in a Day” format.
EECU volunteers were able to spend the whole school day with De Zavala students to teach them about our city, how businesses work and how to make smart decisions with their money using hands-on activities to make these subjects fun.
