Telfer 10 – Junior Achievement Alumni Delivery Day
Tuesday, May 9, 2017
On May 9th, 2017, in commemoration of the 10th year anniversary of the naming of the Telfer School of Management, over 50 Telfer alumni, faculty members and friends will be teaming up with Junior Achievement Ottawa (JA) for JA Delivery Day to promote financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness skills to grade 8 youth in the Ottawa community.
Youth who participate in JA programs go on to save more and borrow less than the average Canadian adult. JA graduates are also 50% more likely to launch businesses and what's more, 65% of Achievers stated that JA has had a significant impact on their decision to stay in school and enroll in post-secondary education.
These are just a few of the many reasons why the Telfer School of Management and our alumni are proud of our partnership with Junior Achievement. What better way to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the naming of the School than by giving back to the community!
