Primed For Success
For the past century Junior Achievement of Rhode Island has reached more than 400,000 K-12 students across the state, teaching them about workplace readiness, financial literacy and entrepreneurship - something that many don’t learn about in their regular school classrooms. The nonprofit organization, which has adapted to changing times, technology and the kids it serves, was positioned to pivot to a digital platform when the pandemic hit in March. Jim Hummel shows us the before - and after.
Highlighting Community Heroes
About Rhode Island Spotlight
The Rhode Island Spotlight is a 501(c)3 non-profit. The mission of the Rhode Island Spotlight is to highlight and celebrate community heroes, both individuals and organizations, that are making a significant, positive difference for fellow Rhode Islanders.
