Franklin Templeton and Junior Achievement partner for FinTech Event
Franklin Templeton and Junior Achievement of Northern California collaborated to welcome Aragon High School students on February 9 who were interested in understanding how Franklin Templeton fosters and uses FinTech to better serve its clients.
A significant charity partner of Franklin Templeton is Junior Achievement. Employee volunteers from all around the US assist in delivering the JA curriculum to kids, providing them with cutting-edge, practical lessons in entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and work preparedness.
The firm’s San Mateo, California campus hosted the FinTech event, which educated young people about the emerging technology and innovation that is challenging traditional financial methods and service delivery. It also provided insight into current financial trends as well as the decisions and suggestions of top industry figures worldwide.
Students gained knowledge about job opportunities in financial services and FinTech thanks to this professional workplace visit. Franklin Templeton was introduced to students through presentations from industry experts and a campus visit that included the company’s FinTech Incubator.
The goal of Junior Achievement is to motivate and equip young people for success in a global economy. Locally, JA brings together students, educators, and business leaders to form effective partnerships that enable young people to take ownership of their economic success by developing their financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurial abilities. 90,000 students receive experiential, hands-on learning opportunities from JA every year, allowing them to relate their academic work to real-world business and industry. Students who take part in JA experience firsthand how achieving academic excellence may position them for a rewarding and meaningful future. Visit www.janorcal.org to learn more.
