Sixth grade students at West Central Middle School took part in Junior Achievement’s Global Marketplace program on Friday, May 10.
Community businessmen and businesswomen served as mentors volunteering their time and sharing their life experiences with the students to make the program a success.
JA’s Global Marketplace provides practical information about the global economy and its effect on students’ lives. The program consists of six volunteer-led sessions and activities. Throughout the six sessions, students learn about domestic trade, exports, imports, international trade, market, embargoes, quotas, subsidies, trade barriers, tariffs, business practices, culture, and much, much more.
Junior Achievement uses hands-on experiences to help young students understand the economics of life.
