EASTON — The Bryan Brothers Foundation Inc. has awarded a grant to Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore, in support of its entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy program.
Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore is dedicated to educating students in kindergarten through 12th grade on financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. Its hands-on, age-appropriate programs inspire youth to live within their means, prepare for the world of wor, and understand the free enterprise system. Junior Achievement is a direct link to real-life applications, making school relevant and increasing students’ engagement in the classroom.
Last school year, Junior Achievement reached 9,500 students on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
“In partnership with our school system, we provide real-world teachings to help children be more successful and allow them an opportunity for a better future,” said Jayme Hayes, president of Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore. “We can only do this through the generosity of organizations like Bryan Brothers Foundation.”
Junior Achievement’s grant focuses on programming for Talbot, Dorchester and Caroline counties, hoping to provide programming for over 125 students.
The Bryan Brothers “Building Dreams for Youth” Foundation’s mission is to help ensure all children on the Mid-Shore have the opportunity to experience personal growth through participation in youth sports, recreation and development programs.
Since its inception in 2003, the Bryan Brothers Foundation has provided more than $1.3 million in grants to support Shore kids. The foundation provides donors with the opportunity to support a broad range of worthwhile youth programs with their contributions.
