Junior Achievement Marks 90 Years of Business Education


高速下载

This is the VOA Special English Economics Report.

This year, Junior Achievement marks its ninetieth anniversary of educating young people about business and economics. The nonprofit organization is the largest of its kind. Jack Kosakowky is executive vice president.

JACK KOSAKOWSKY: "We are the oldest business and economic education organization in the world.  We're now serving nine-point-two million young people around the globe in one hundred twenty-three different countries."

Programs begin in elementary school and continue through middle and high school. The education is based on the ideas of market-based economics and entrepreneurship.

Junior Achievement began in nineteen nineteen in Springfield, Massachusetts. Two business leaders, Horace Moses and Theodore Vail, joined with Senator Murray Crane of Massachusetts to start the group.

For more than fifty years, Junior Achievement programs operated through clubs that met after school. But in nineteen seventy-five, JA also began to teach business skills during the school day.

Volunteers from the community teach about businesses, how they are organized, and how products are made and sold. The volunteers also teach about the American and world economies and about industry and trade.

The Junior Achievement Company Program teaches young people how entrepreneurship works. They learn about business by operating their own companies.

Students develop a product and sell shares in their company. They use the money to buy the materials they need to make their product, which they then sell. Finally, they return the profits to the people who bought shares in the company.

Chellsey Cruz joined a student-operated company two years ago. The Higher Grounds Cafe in West Hills, California, sells high quality coffee.

She says her experience has given her valuable training that will help her for a lifetime.

CHELLSEY CRUZ: "It taught me to be dedicated, and that if you want to be successful, you have to put in a lot of time and effort. You really have to work at it."

Junior Achievement says three hundred eighty-five thousand volunteers support its programs around the world. In the United States alone, there are nearly twenty-three thousand places that hold Junior Achievement events.

Junior Achievement Incorporated and Junior Achievement International combined their operations in two thousand four. They formed Junior Achievement Worldwide. Its headquarters are in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

And that's the VOA Special English Economics Report, written by Mario Ritter with additional reporting by Faiza Elmasry. Transcripts, MP3s and podcasts of our programs can be found at en8848.com. And you can follow us on Twitter at VOA Special English. I'm Steve Ember.

JA(Junior Achievement) 是全球最大、发展最快的非营利商业和经济教育组织,旨在启迪和教育青少年重视市场经济,并通过学习和参与商业活动来提高他们未来的生活质量。它成立于 1919年,总部设在美国科罗拉多州。自创建以来,JA已为世界各国的青少年提供了广泛的商业和经济教育。目前,JA在全球近100个国家设立了连锁机构,每年为700多万青少年提供免费的商业和经济类课程。

作为连接教育界和工商界的桥梁,JA中国开发并实施从小学到大学的经济、商业课程。我们与学校合作开展课程,与企业合作招募志愿者并获得资金支持。

JA SISU成立于2002年。团队主要负责JA在上外校内的课程及大型活动的开展。经过6年的发展,JA上外团队从一个发起人到建立3人团队,到如今团队成员已经壮大到12人!在此期间,每一届团队成员都为JA在上外的发展付出了不懈的努力,从只能承办JA上海办公室的几项小活动,到今天成为举办JA课程的品牌学校,成为JA大型活动的高效承办团队,成为校园内学生普遍知晓的经济商业课程的开办者,我们拥有了越来越多老师和学生的支持和认同!

JA中国(Junior Achievement China)是一个非营利组织,在周保罗先生和周氏家庭基金会的支持下于1993年成立。2005至2006学年,30多家知名跨国公司赞助了JA中国的课程和活动,4,000多名企业志愿者参与授课,来自北京、上海和广州的62,315名学生参加了免费的JA课程。这些课程将有助于他们成长为未来的国际型商业人才。
