Junior Achievement aims at prepping teens for business success

    Area teens will be able to get a jump start on a successful career during the Junior Achievement Tuolumne County program next year.
    The classes are open to all students from age 14 to 18 interested. Business leaders, entrepreneurs and financial experts from the community will lead the classes. The programs focus on work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy, according to a press release.
    Junior Achievement students learn how to start and grow a business, how to successfully contribute in the workplace and how to manage the money they earn. The programs also help young people prepare for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and manage it, how to create jobs, make their communities more robust and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace.
    “We’re looking forward to mentoring the youth in Tuolumne County on the ins and outs of business while showing them first-hand how a business person makes decisions and runs their company,” said Larry Cope, director of economic development at the Tuolumne County Economic Development Authority.
    The program is open to all Tuolumne County area high school students, but space is limited to 24 kids. The free classes will start on Feb. 2 and will run after school from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursdays at the Sonora Regional Medical Center conference room.
