Learn About Ethics

Junior Achievement teaches students how to succeed in a global economy. An important element of that success includes pursuing business goals in a responsible and ethical manner — from the way we treat colleagues to the way we handle environmental resources. We can build a consciousness of ethical behavior by setting a good example. We can start in everyday situations that take place at school and at home. The classroom is an excellent setting to learn and discuss the meaning of ethics and its impact on all aspects of our lives

Junior Achievement has a classroom-based program called Excellence through Ethics, designed for students in grade four through twelve. The curriculum is designed to teach our children that responsible, ethical behavior is essential to a successful future. The 40 classroom activities can be downloaded right here!
