Connecting with Local Business Leaders: A Glimpse into the Real World
One of the highlights of JA Global Entrepreneurship Week is the unique opportunity it provides for students to connect with local business leaders. Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast has partnered with The School District of Palm Beach County to make these connections possible.
Throughout the week, students will have the privilege of listening to inspirational stories and real-world experiences from area business leaders.

Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast is honored to bring GEW to life for local students and provide them with the knowledge, experience, and connections they need to succeed.
