Since 2014, Manchester and Junior Achievement have partnered to bringing financial literacy lessons to students. First and second year MBA students from the USC Marshall School of Business volunteer to teach lessons to students. Junior Achievement believes that every child deserves the opportunity to take control of their own economic future. They teach young people how to make smart financial decisions, prepare for the working world, and become entrepreneurs. Junior Achievement inspires students to dream big and to see a world of limitless opportunities for their futures.
Together, Manchester and Junior Achievement are teaching the next generation of students the business of life.
During COVID-19, USC volunteers taught ZOOM lessons on “earn, spend, save” and “needs vs. wants”.
