Ju­nior Achieve­ment and Sco­tia­bank team up

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Sco­tia­bank has part­nered with Ju­nior Achieve­ment to start an Eco­nom­ics for Suc­cess Pro­gramme. In keep­ing with Sco­tia­bank’s global phil­an­thropic man­date to sup­port the youth through ed­u­ca­tion, this pro­gramme is fo­cused on gearing up young adults to pre­pare them for the world of work and em­pow­er­ing them to make ap­pro­pri­ate choices about their fu­ture ca­reers. As part of this pro­gramme, Ju­nior Achieve­ment launched an “In­no­va­tion Camp” where six se­condary schools through­out the is­land par­tic­i­pated in a live res­o­lu­tion ac­tiv­ity: the stu­dents pro­posed ideas for find­ing new tech so­lu­tions to im­prove fam­ily sav­ings to­wards ed­u­ca­tion.

The St. Joseph’s Con­vent was the win­ner of the chal­lenge with its unique idea of “Net­flix and Save”. The stu­dents re­ceived a Cer­tifi­cate of Achieve­ment and, as the win­ners of the chal­lenge, will rep­re­sent Saint Lu­cia in the re­gional com­pe­ti­tion which will be sched­uled for a later date this year. Dur­ing the clos­ing of the event all schools re­ceived a Cer­tifi­cate of Par­tic­i­pa­tion from Ju­nior Achieve­ment.
