Junior Achievement’s Chick-fil-A Foundation Discovery Center Holds Grand Opening Celebration
Posted by Diane Storey — August 26, 2013
ATLANTA, GEORGIA – The new Junior Achievement’s Chick-fil-A Foundation Discovery Center held its long awaited Grand Opening celebration on Tuesday, August 20, 2013.
Atlanta media and leaders from the business community packed the entry hall of the new Discovery Center on the upper mezzanine level of the Georgia World Congress Center to hear opening remarks and catch a glimpse of the ceremonial ribbon cutting.
Attendees were treated to delicious fare from Chick-fil-A as they toured JA BizTown and JA Finance Park – two Junior Achievement programs that make up the Discovery Center. Through these new programs, Georgia students will be exposed to hands-on, interactive learning, which will enhance financial literacy and work readiness among Georgia’s youth.
Harry Norman, REALTORS® and Post Apartment Homes® showcased their new storefront in JA Finance Park, where students will gain real-world experience on how to choose their first home. In addition, volunteers will be trained to guide students through budgeting decisions on home ownership and leasing options.
Beginning in September, Atlanta Public Schools, DeKalb County Schools, Fulton County Schools and Marietta City Schools will integrate Junior Achievement’s financial literacy and work readiness education into the core curriculum for middle school students. Metro Atlanta is joining communities across the nation in the movement to incorporate financial literacy education and 21st century skills development into the school curriculum.
