Serving the future leaders of America.
One lesson at a time.
The JEC Standard:
The Junior Economic Club of Atlanta is an entirely student-led club that provides determined, aspiring high school students exposure to the real business world. As an organization, we firmly believe that given the right guidance and support, high school students are capable of addressing economic issues facing our society. The Club provides the necessary resources to empower tomorrow’s leaders to make an impact in their communities.
The current education system does not adequately prepare students for the growing complexity of the economy or the changing business world. By starting preparation early, the Junior Economic Club is guaranteeing Atlanta’s continuing prosperity for generations to come through our ** OutReach ATL program **.
The Junior Economic Club brings together the students of Atlanta to an unparalleled ecosystem of discussion, exposure and leadership. The Club invests in Gwinnett’s future by allowing students to understand and solve some of the biggest financial problems in both the public and private sectors. By giving these students a head start, the Club is nurturing more effective, efficient, and responsible leaders, thereby guaranteeing Gwinnett’s prosperous future for generations to come. Ultimately, we will hopefully partner with the senior Economic Club of Atlanta, and receive recognition for our ** Junior Economist article program **.
