On Tuesday, May 10th several of our employees traveled to schools in the Boston area to participate in a day of volunteerism with JA in a Day New England! More than 50 Experian Data Quality (EDQ) employees volunteered at the St. Patrick’s Day School of Boston and Pope John Paul – Lower Mills. Students from the Boston Latin Academy were also invited into the EDQ office in the Financial District to learn more about our employees, products, and services and to see what a day in the life of an EDQ’er is like.
Junior Achievement focuses on fostering work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy skills for students in kindergarten through grade 12. Our employees were given an opportunity to pair up and take over classes for one day to teach students of all ages lessons in business ranging from “what a bank account is” for kindergarten classes to “how to become an entrepreneur” for 6th grade classrooms.
At the end of the day, students received certificates to congratulate them for completing the JA in a Day program. We had a great time meeting with the kids and look forward to participating with the JA in a Day program again in the future!
