Sacred Heart University’s Business Administration club recently partnered with Junior Achievement of Western Connecticut to host an event at Daniels Farm Elementary School in Trumbull. Junior Achievement (JA) is a nonprofit organization that uses volunteers from the business community to deliver programs to K-12 students. These programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills by using experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential.
“The event consisted of the delivery of a business and entrepreneurship curriculum, developed by JA, to fourth and fifth graders,” said Tuvana Rua, faculty advisor of the Business Administration club. “SHU students delivered this curriculum to eight fourth- and fifth-grade classes, introducing business concepts such as entrepreneurship, product development, running a business, marketing, resources and supply chains and globalization.”
