This month’s featured service project highlights the Golden Key International Honour Society Headquarters staff collaborating with the Junior Achievement Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The GK staff spent the day with over 200 Atlanta Public City School 7th graders at the Junior Achievement Discovery Center in downtown Atlanta. The students were given real-life scenarios including an assigned job, annual salary, children and other financial expenses. Students spent the majority of the day learning how to budget, pay bills and make real-world “adult” decisions based on their particular scenarios. The GK staff helped guide the students through the center and taught lessons on how to make important and smart financial choices. The GK Headquarters team can hardly wait to go back and volunteer again in 2016!
Take a look at a recap video of the project!
