迅雷专用高速下载

This is the VOA Special English Economics Report.

Junior Achievement is an international movement to educate young people about business and economics. The purpose is to help them prepare to succeed in a world economy.

知识扩展:JA及JA中国简介

JA全球(Junior Achievement Worldwide?)是全世界最大、发展最快的非营利教育组织,旨在激励和帮助青少年在全球经济中取得成功。它成立于1919年,总部设在美国科罗拉多州。目前,JA在全球100多个国家进行经济和商业教育,每年有700多万青少年接受免费的JA课程。 JA中国(Junior Achievement China)由JA全球董事、美籍华裔企业家周保罗先生于1993年成立,旨在通过与工商界和教育界合作,开展并推广以原则为核心、以互动性为特色的商业和经济教育,培养中国青少年的品格、创造力和领导力。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。

The organization is the largest of its kind. JA Worldwide says it reaches over eight million students each year in more than one hundred 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 it.

For more than fifty years, Junior Achievement programs met after school. They began as a group of business clubs. The organization started with a small number of children ages ten to twelve.

But in nineteen seventy-five, Junior Achievement began to offer classes during school hours. Many more young people joined the organization once it began to teach business skills as part of the school day.

Volunteers from the community teach about businesses, how they are organized, and how products are made and sold. They 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.

The 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 then they sell. Finally, they return the profits to the people who bought shares in the company.

Junior Achievement says two hundred eighty-seven thousand volunteers support its programs around the world. In the United States alone, there are more than twenty-two 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 Shelley Gollust and Mario Ritter. Transcripts and archives of our reports are at en8848.com along with a link to the Junior Achievement Web site, ja.org. I'm Faith Lapidus.
