Greensboro, NC -- In North Carolina, Junior Achievement is molding the minds of future business leaders.
Across the state, Junior Achievement assists more than 11,000 students in 350 classrooms.
On Monday, the National President & CEO of Junior Achievement, Jack Kosakowski, made his way to Greensboro to see just how successful Junior Achievement of Central Carolina is.
Kosakowski shared that success on the Good Morning Show on Tuesday.
"Anytime a chapter helps more than 10,000 students, that's a big deal," said Kosakowski.
This was his first trip to the Triad.
The local chapter helps students K-12 explore business first-hand through their program.
According to Guilford County Schools, Junior Achievement has helped a number of graduating seniors find the means and motivation to pursue business opportunities.
Junior Achievement courses are taught in school classrooms.
Students cannot individually sign up for the classes, but teachers can request to have the program in their classrooms.
