EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -Junior Achievement of Wisconsin is once again inviting the community to hit the links for its oldest fundraiser benefitting students in northwestern Wisconsin.

As the school year comes to a close and the summer season kicks off, Junior Achievement is looking ahead to the 2022-2023 calendar school year.

Junior Achievement provides programs to teach area youth in grades 2-12 about financial literacy and success.

“At the grade school level we have JA lessons about budgeting, financial literacy, creating your own business being an entrepreneur, at the high school level, career readiness is a bigger portion of what I like volunteering and teaching,” says Jeff Tornow, JA board of director and Scheels store director. “Teaching them how to understand communication especially nowadays with technology we don’t do a lot of face to face interactions so it’s a good opportunity to learn some of those life skills.”

Tornow says the non-profit is also looking for volunteers to help teach lessons in the classroom.

“If you’re willing to volunteer just reach out to JA of Northwest Wisconsin, whatever it is, whatever grade level you want to interact with believe me you will get more out of it than even the kids do,” says Tornow.

Susan Peterson and Jeff Tornow with JA join Hello Wisconsin Tuesday live from Wild Ridge Golf Course.

To register before May 27! see here.

Junior Achievement is also accepting items for the online auction and event raffles. To donate, call Junior Achievement at (715) 835-5566 or email Lynn Barrie at lbarrie@jawis.org
