January 27th and February 4th Roger and Shawn are hosting Junior Achievement’s Business Basics: Our Business World (.pdf) program for homeschooled youth ages 10-11 years who are interested in learning about business.

- Greater appreciation and understanding of concepts related to business and economics;
- Practical experience making decisions in real-life situations;
- Awareness of the range of jobs and careers available through education.
Like all Junior Achievement programs, this four-hour workshop is provided free of charge, and facilitated by volunteers, business professionals from the local community.
