Judy put one up for Pat’s joining the 70’s club.

Mary B was happy, too. But, she didn’t have a buck.

Libby related a “Book of Mormon” story… She discovered two young, well dressed young men who were sharing a joint in an arroyo!

Mollie has a leak which cannot be found! Does someone have the name of a good plumber?

Sgt-at-Arms Allan’s questions for today: Rotary Magazine, re: Shelter Box.  As we all remember, we have sent one to Nepal in the recent past. Shelter Box people are trained and they have a final exam. Where does this take place? No one guessed that it’s in the U.K.

Today’s Program:     New Mexico Junior Achievement

Karen introduced Mr. Mark Schmit, program manager.

Junior Achievement of New Mexico, Inc. is the state's largest economic education organization. Junior Achievement uses free hands-on experiences to help young people understand the economics of life. In partnership with business and educators, JA brings the real world to students, opening their minds to their potential.

JA is a 501(c)(3) organization which was begun in 1919. They believe that every child deserves an education in economics and finances in order to inspire and prepare them for success in a global economy.

Their goal is to build young people's capacity to spur economic development and contribute to America's global competitiveness. Junior Achievement helps prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate and effectively manage wealth, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace.

In learning these lessons, and putting them into quantifiable action, students become intimately familiar with economics and finances. They become better prepared to assume their role in the practical world of work and responsible citizenship.

JA empowers young people to own their economic success. Their volunteer-based K-12 programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire kids to dream big and reach their potential.

Junior Achievement is New Mexico's organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through real-world, hands-on programs.

Programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.

JA's unique approach (less lectures and more hands-on) allows volunteers from the community to deliver their curriculum while sharing their experiences with students. Embodying the heart of JA, 202,000 classroom volunteers transform the key concepts of their lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world.

JA does need volunteers/mentors and donations. $36 allows JA to serve one student and $1000 permits them to offer a program to one class at a partner school. We’re looking into starting up JA at Manzano HS
