For his service on our Board of Directors, his outstanding support of JA’s fundraising events, and his efforts to expand the reach of our free education programs … we are excited to announce JA Board Member Andrew Rodrigues of Webster Bank as our JA Supporter of the Week!
As a member of Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts’ Board of Directors, Andrew helps lead the organization in our mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. He has played an integral role in the growth of our long-standing partnership with Webster Bank to support free financial literacy education for students across the region.
Andrew is a great supporter of our fundraising events which help keep everything Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts does 100% free for students and schools. He participates in our annual IRONMAN Golf Championship fundraiser as well as our annual Strikes for Success bowling fundraiser which is sponsored by Webster Bank.
In addition to supporting JA programs through fundraising, Andrew gives his time to serve as a volunteer Business Mentor every year at JA’s Titan Business Challenge. This free event brings together over 200 high school students from across the region and gives them opportunities to participate in a dynamic learning experience, hear from some of the region’s top business leaders, and compete for important scholarship awards that can help make a higher education possible. As a Business Mentor, Andrew shares his financial expertise and offers guidance while students compete in teams using the interactive business simulator JA Titan.
“Andrew has been a tremendous asset to our organization – from serving on our Board of Directors, to supporting our fundraising events, to volunteering for JA programs. He has been a major part of the growth of our organization in recent years and we are fortunate for his leadership and dedication to helping young people across our region achieve their full potential. We are so thankful for everything Andrew does for JA and our community!” – Jeffrey Pelletier, Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts President
With deep gratitude for his commitment to strengthening JA and advancing financial literacy education across Southern Massachusetts, we are proud to honor Andrew Rodrigues as our JA Supporter of the Week!
