Papa John's and Junior Achievement Join Forces to Deliver "Business of Life" Lessons to Nation's Students
Papa John's International and JA Worldwide have formed a partnership that will help local JA Offices deliver work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy to U.S. students.
In addition, participating Papa John's franchise and corporate-owned restaurants may conduct "job shadow" events at which JA students can experience first-hand what it is like to own and run a Papa John's restaurant and Papa John's employees are encouraged to volunteer to teach JA classes at schools in their communities. JA Offices can also expand the partnership to include recruiting Papa John's franchisees and local market team leadership to serve on their board of directors.
JA Worldwide is the world's largest organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy. Through a dedicated volunteer network, JA Worldwide provides in-school and after-school programs for students K-12. Today, nearly 120 individual area operations reach more than 4.2 million students in the United States, with an additional 10 million students served by operations in 121 other countries worldwide.
