Bank Five Nine was proud to support Junior Achievement of Wisconsin with a sponsorship of $1,200 toward their Biz Town program. JA Biz Town combines in-class learning with a day-long visit to a simulated town. This popular program allows elementary school students to operate banks, manage restaurants, write checks, and vote for the mayor. The program helps students connect the dots between what they learn in school and the real world.
“On behalf of the students at Jim’s JA BizTown and JA Finance Park, thank you for your generous gift to Junior Achievement. Your contribution signifies trust in our youth’s potential. With the support of sponsors like Bank Five Nine, we’re reminded of the strength in community,” said Jenny Gryniewicz, senior development director of Junior Achievement of Wisconsin.
Junior Achievement has 105 local JA Areas across the nation, and together they are the nation’s largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their futures, and make smart academic and economic choices. Their purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. For more information about Junior Achievement of Wisconsin, please visit https://wisconsin.ja.org/.
