Luso Federal Credit Union is a proud sponsor of Junior Achievement in both the Wilbraham and Ludlow School systems.
This is our second year bringing the JA In-A-Day program to the Wilbraham Middle School.
This year, we had thirty-three volunteers teach over 500 WMS students the curriculum!
The 6th graders learned about the “Global Marketplace” learning domestic trade, international trade, import/export and the market; the 7th graders learned “It’s My Future” teaching the kids about logos, branding, creating their personal brand and long-term consequences; and the 8th graders learned about “Economics for Success” teaching the kids about skills, interests and values and learning about setting goals, monetary incentives and understanding how to budget their money.
The kids love this program and so do our volunteers.
