It Takes A Village

Tanner LLC presents JA-in-a-Day at Foxboro Elementary

They say it takes a village to raise a child and we know that to be true. This fall, Tanner LLC, an accounting firm in Salt Lake City, closed their business office for the day so the entire staff, 95 in total, could take part in volunteering at Foxoboro Elementary, in the Davis School District, to present JA-in-a-Day.

Junior Achievement could not reach over 85,000 students each year without the support of our business, foundation and individual sponsors. We also couldn’t do it without all the amazing individuals and organizations willing to give of their time to share JA’s three pillars with students throughout Utah: Career Readiness, Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship.  But here at JA, we believe that the most important thing these volunteers bring to classroom is not the JA curriculum, but rather their mentorship and caring. Volunteers may not always know the difference that  they have made in a child’s life, but we know that anytime a caring adult is giving their time and support to a child, they have made a immeasurable difference.
