SHRM and Junior Achievement

Workforce readiness is an area that the Genesee Valley Chapter of SHRM (GVC SHRM) has focused on in a number of ways over the years ranging from helping support the Volunteers of America Working Wardrobe to partnering with AARP on various events.


SHRM national and Junior Achievement (JA) have formed a partnership. Here at the local chapter level that partnership gives GVC SHRM and its members a way to easily become involved with Junior Achievement and allow the Chapter yet another way to continue the work it does regarding workforce readiness.


Junior Achievement engages children in grades 5-12. Through this engagement children are prompted to start thinking about their future and career success. HR professionals are a natural fit with Junior Achievement. They already possess a knowledge and expertise they can share with youth to help them understand what organizations are looking for in people and how to be successful in the workforce.


By participating in Junior Achievement, you can make a difference and help prepare children for success after school. JA makes it easy for you. They provide the training, great materials, and a teacher partner. If you are interested in getting involved

you can complete an online application by clicking here. In the additional comments area of the application you are welcome to indicate you are part of SHRM but it is not required. Once you complete the application a representative from Junior Achievement will contact you. While there are a number of immediate needs there is also a variety of locations, age groups, and teaching materials you can choose from to fit your style and preference.


Again, we hope you will consider getting involved. To find out more about Junior achievement click here
