Junior Achievement of Southern California (JASoCal) and Compton Unified School District students, grades 3, 4, 6 & 7, would like to thank AIG Life & Retirement for fully funding their month-long virtual summer financial literacy program. The generous $20,000 donation allowed 420 students from the school district to learn important key concepts in financial literacy and work readiness skills.
AIG Life & Retirement, JASoCal and 55 volunteers from 8 companies united in the mission of preparing students for the future. Students received volunteer-led programming which taught them concepts and the benefits of saving, budgeting, resume building, personal branding and understanding how to market their skills.
“One of JASoCal’s main goals is to empower our area’s young people to own their economic success.,” said Kat Delgado Kirkwood, Senior Vice President of Programs at JASoCal. “We’re thankful to AIG Life & Retirement for sharing in our mission and for providing the resources needed to help equip the students of Compton with the tools needed to achieve their dreams.”
AIG Life & Retirement continues to be a leading supporter of Junior Achievement programs both locally and nationally to help students gain the knowledge and skills they need to make smart academic and economic choices.
“AIG Life & Retirement is committed to making a difference in the communities we serve,” said Rob Scheinerman, Chief Executive Officer, AIG Retirement Services. “We are grateful to have the opportunity to support Junior Achievement as they continue their important work of bringing financial literacy and work readiness skills to today’s youth. Our volunteers enjoyed meeting the students of the Compton Unified Student District and seeing all they accomplished over the summer.”
