Some words from one of last year's Company Program team members:
"Before attending the Junior Achievement program, I knew little to nothing about business and what it took to run a business. Now, after my experience with Junior Achievement, I understand the number of different teams and the endless work that come together to produce a single product. We had marketing, sales, product, and management teams that all worked together. The marketing team and I had so much fun making a commercial and brainstorming ways to bring our product, PiggyPack, to the public. My favorite moment with the entire company is when we finally got to see our product (a waterproof, dual compartment athletic bag) in person. We had been working on the logistics of the bag for over a month, and to finally see all of our hard work come to life was so exciting. Even if you aren't currently interested in going into business in the future, I would highly recommend joining the JA program, because it introduces you to many other dedicated and inspiring high school students, and it gives you a newfound appreciation for the world of business."
