ING U.S. Employee Volunteers Reach 1,100 Students with Junior Achievement in a Day
Minneapolis, MN - February 13, 2012 - ING U.S. employee volunteers in Minneapolis, Minn., welcomed the opportunity to go back to high school.
Nearly 40 employee volunteers spent a half day at Monticello High School in Monticello, Minn., for the Junior Achievement in a Day program in partnership with Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest (JAUM). The volunteers entered ninth- through twelfth-grade classrooms, instructing students on Junior Achievement curricula focused on how to make career decisions, the importance of personal finance, developing successful problem-solving skills, and why business ethics and developing their own personal values matter when they enter the workforce. By the end of the day, ING employee volunteers influenced 1,100 students.
“Employees across all our locations get excited about Junior Achievement,” said Rhonda Mims, president of the ING Foundation and senior vice president of the ING U.S. Office of Corporate Responsibility. “We have a long-standing relationship with Junior Achievement offices across the nation as our organizations share a common mission to enhance financial literacy, particularly among our youth.”
“The incredible support we receive from the team at ING is helping shape the future success of our Junior Achievement kids," said LaChelle Williams, vice president of Education with Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest. "Our JAUM Board Member from ING, Dan Mulheran, continues to help drive ING's organizational connections that build and impact students’ understanding of financial literacy and career/college readiness. This event reached its full potential due to Kurt Fasen's leadership and his ING Corporate Council team.”
