Aptar employees in Stratford, Conn. recently participated in the Junior Achievement program called “JA in a Day”, at the Geraldine Johnson School in Bridgeport, Conn.
“JA in a Day” takes place in the classroom, during which volunteers present Junior Achievement curriculum to students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Junior Achievement’s Purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. They are dedicated to helping children understand how to achieve economic success and become the world’s next aspiring entrepreneurs. JA helps students realize that the education they are getting today will help them have a bright future tomorrow. JA’s unique, volunteer delivered programs, show them all of the possibilities that lay before them. They realize that they can choose different paths such as college, a specific trade or even start their own business.
The Aptar volunteers, which included Srinivasan Ramanan, Steven Lynchard, Eloi Fernandes, Andrea Rojas, Alex Matolcsy and Amy Flood were delighted to participate in this event and help the children of today grow into the success stories of tomorrow.
