JA Supporter of the Week: Erin Nogueira
Published: Thursday, 11 Mar 2021
For her service on our Board of Directors as well as her support of JA programs and events … we are excited to announce Erin Nogueira of Bearingstar Insurance as our JA Supporter of the Week!
As a member of Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts’ Board of Directors, Erin helps bring JA’s free financial literacy, career readiness, and entrepreneurship education programs to thousands of students across the region.
She is an outstanding supporter of the JA SPARK Program – a free two-year program for middle school girls which focuses on leadership development and entrepreneurial thinking – and has served as a role model to the participants, supporting them during their final business plan presentations. At SPARK Camp, she has participated in a Career Pathways Roundtable, sharing the educational and career journey that led her to where she is today.
Erin has also volunteered as a Business Mentor for the JA Titan Business Challenge, offering guidance and business advice as students compete in teams using the interactive online business simulator JA Titan. Each year this event brings together over 200 high school students from across the region, giving them the opportunity 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.
“Erin is always willing to give her time to help JA – whether it’s speaking at a program, volunteering at a student event, or helping run a fundraiser. She has also led JA in developing a partnership with Bearingstar Insurance and the Bearingstar Insurance Charitable Fund, which is serving as a Team Sponsor for the upcoming 8th Annual JA Titan Business Challenge. We’re so thankful for everything Erin does to support JA!” – Jeffrey Pelletier, Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts President
With deep gratitude for her support and dedication to Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts’ mission, we are proud to honor Erin Nogueira as our JA Supporter of the Week!
