3M Ireland supports Junior Achievement Volunteers

3M Ireland Limited supports Junior Achievement Ireland in encouraging young people to remain in education and teaching them the skills they need to succeed in a changing world. Junior Achievement is part of a worldwide organisation which was established in Ireland in 1995. Since then it has built up a strong demand from schools throughout the country and created successful partnerships with over 150 leading organisations such as 3M. By supporting Junior Achievement we are helping to create a culture of enterprise within the education system and also bringing science and maths skills to thousands of young students nationwide through class programmes and events. The programmes begin at primary school level, teaching children how they can impact the world around them as individuals, workers and consumers and continues through to secondary school, right up to age 18, preparing students for their future careers.

All Junior Achievement programmes are taught by business volunteers and 3M encourages its employees to volunteer in delivering the programmes in schools.
