Junior Achievement of B.C. (JABC) has received a $10,000 boost for its business education programs from Prospera Credit Union.
This contribution will specifically go towards the Economics for Success programs in the Okanagan and Fraser Valleys. This program encourages Grade 9 and 10 students to reflect on the advantages of remaining in school to acquire the knowledge and skills needed for long-term career success.
“Our commitment to making a difference in the financial well-being of our members extends beyond simply offering financial services, to providing individuals at all stages of life with the skills and knowledge they need to make good financial decisions,” said Bruce Howell, president of Prospera Credit Union.
“Education is one of the key principles of the co-operative business model and we see it as an investment in our communities. One important way that our credit union is able to deliver on this commitment for young people is through partnerships with organizations like Junior Achievement British Columbia.”
