Nearly 50 Lincoln Financial Group volunteers recently worked in classrooms at Batchelder Elementary School in Hartford, Conn. teaching on topics that ranged from being a good citizen of the community to financial literacy and entrepreneurship. It was part of the company’s second annual Junior Achievement (JA) Day.

By using hands-on activities relevant to students’ interests and lifestyles, employees related the students’ schoolwork to the real world and the skills they will need to get jobs. These skills included how money works, filling out a job application and deposit slip, calculating profit, and community involvement. Employees further enriched the curriculum by drawing on their own business experiences to illustrate the concepts.

Lincoln Financial Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Lincoln Financial Group, has had an ongoing partnership with Junior Achievement: the world's largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, make smart academic and economic choices, and become their own Chief Life Officers.
