Pass On The Dream!

Gig Harbor, WA - On August 23rd promote your business, benefit Peninsula School District employees, and help send a bunch of smart, ambitious kids to Junior Achievement Biz Town in Auburn.

Remember when you dreamed of owning a business or becoming a valuable employee? We bet you do. That’s why we host Partners in Learning to send kids to Junior Achievement Biz Town in Auburn.

Here’s the deal: You showcase your business to 700+ Peninsula School District employees at the Partners in Learning business expo-styled event following their back to school meeting. They go home aware of how you can help them or their friends. And booth fees are donated to transport kids to Biz Town.

Lots of us learned key lessons from Junior Achievement—or wish we had. You can make it a whole lot easier for future business leaders to learn by signing up for a booth.

Every year about twenty thousand students go through Biz Town and Finance Park, capstones of Junior Achievement. Biz Town gives fifth-graders throughout the region a taste of what it’s like to run a business, balance a budget and manage employees.

Details: Tuesday, August 23 at Gig Harbor High School; member and non-member booths $300 and $350; sponsored by Peninsula Light Company; learn more by visiting and clicking on About, Chamber Annual Events, Partners in Learning. You may also call 253-851.6865 .
