EECU – A Community Credit Union is proud to announce that Liz Hoffius, an employee of EECU, has been awarded Junior Achievement’s Volunteer of the Year. As the Financial Education Coordinator for EECU, Liz has provided financial education to over 50 schools in the 12 counties in which they serve. She teaches on subjects such as budgeting, credit, and investing.
Liz volunteers for Junior Achievement in many ways, including serving on the Crazy Bowl event committee, teaching JA curriculum in classrooms, and fundraising for the non-profit group. “I am proud to serve such a worthy cause. Junior Achievement is a great asset to the youth in our community. I am so thrilled to receive this award!” said Liz Hoffius.
Since 1919, Junior Achievement's purpose has been to educate and inspire young people to value free enterprise and understand business and economics to improve the quality of their lives. Junior Achievement’s programs are taught by classroom volunteers from the community they serve. Junior Achievement is a volunteer driven, non-profit organization. This year, more than 2,000 business professionals, parents, retirees and college students will enter schools to teach Junior Achievement programs. These volunteers use their personal experiences to make the Junior Achievement curricula practical and realistic. Providing children with positive adult role models and confidence is a hallmark of Junior Achievement.
