Junior Achievement: Preparing the future workforce
Tuesday, February 06, 2018
Aitkin Action Alliance member Kurt Klicker of Neighborhood National Bank in Aitkin has a mission to bring the Junior Achievement (JA) of the Upper Midwest programs to Aitkin Schools.
JA empowers students to make a connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world – enhancing the relevance of their classroom learning and increasing their understanding of the value of staying in school.
Klicker currently volunteers with Junior Achievement in the Crosby-Ironton school district. He invited Amy Gray, District Manager for Junior Achievement in the Brainerd Lakes Area to give a presentation on the program during the Aitkin Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Committee meeting on Dec. 13.
