INDIANAPOLIS - Today the Indianapolis Indians spent the day with the fourth graders of Sand Creek Elementary School. The Tribe front office volunteered their time teaching Junior Achievement's JA In A Day curriculum on owning and operating a business.

Indianapolis Indians volunteers taught Junior Achievement's hands-on, interactive curriculum to fourth grade students about personal finance, career paths, entrepreneurship and employability skills. A total of six classrooms participated from Sand Creek Elementary, impacting more than 120 students.
"The Indianapolis Indians fully support Junior Achievement's mission of preparing Central Indiana youth for a future career, no matter the path," said Indianapolis Indians President and General Manager Randy Lewandowski. "There's nothing more important than an education. We're committed to supporting the children in our community by volunteering and providing resources to help them grow into our leaders of tomorrow."
"JA is thrilled to have established a strong partnership with the Indianapolis Indians to educate and inspire students to own their future success. This JA Day event is an exciting opportunity to make a big difference in the lives of these young students in a single day," said Jennifer Burk, JA's President and CEO.
