THE STUDENT POPULATION LOST VALUABLE LEARNING HOURS SINCE THE ONSET OF THE COVID PANDEMIC. JA GUAM KNEW THAT IT WAS TIME TO LAUNCH A SUMMER PROGRAM IN RESPONSE TO THIS DEFFICIENCY AND NONE OF THIS COULD BE MADE POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF OUR CORPORATE PARTNERSHIPS.
“For 11 years, Bank of Hawaii has been proud to partner with Junior Achievement Guam in presenting financial literacy sessions to students. Our employee volunteers teach economic and entrepreneurial programs providing students with opportunities to learn the role money plays in today’s society, which sets them on the path to making smart decisions about managing their finances. We look forward to our continued support of JA and the great work they do in our community.”
