FAIRPORT, NY, May 15, 2013 – Manning & Napier (Manning & Napier or “the Company”), announces its support as a participant of Junior Achievement of Rochester, New York’s “JA in a Day” programming. Employees spent the day at Nathaniel Rochester Community School No. 3, teaching students concepts such as basic financial principles and making connections between lessons learned in academia and in the workforce.
“JA in a Day” is a special Junior Achievement initiative that facilitates partnerships between businesses and elementary schools to bring the entire JA program to students in a single day. Business volunteers help to educate and inspire youth, and give them hope for future workforce development as they learn new skills.
“Manning & Napier is proud to support a program in our region that fosters one of the most important issues facing our country today – financial literacy,” said Patrick Cunningham, Chief Executive Officer, Manning & Napier. “As a financial services firm, we have a responsibility to teach people the value of basic financial principles, and help facilitate this in our community. Our goal is to help people become better financial advocates for themselves as they progress through life – from academics through retirement.”
