LDM Global is pleased to sponsor the Junior Achievement program in Steamboat Springs. LDM Global, http://www.ldmglobal.com, is an eDiscovery and computer forensics consultancy. It moved its headquarters to Steamboat Springs in 2012.
Junior Achievement, http://www.jacolorado.org/about-ja/, helps young people reach their full potential through partnering with role models who inspire them to envision a successful future. LDM Global recognizes this important connection and through funding and employee engagement will help bring JA programs to over 750 students in the Steamboat Springs school district in 2015-16.
LDM Global Vice President of Team Stephanie Gremminger and Sales Coordinator Amy Satkiewicz have been using hands-on classroom activities to introduce students to the intersection of entrepreneurship and first-grade social studies learning objectives, including how family members’ jobs and businesses contribute to the well-being of the family. In addition, LDM Global CEO and President Chris O’Reilly will present during the Journey Ahead workshop, which is a 2-hour program for 140 eighth-grade boys from five area middle schools. The sessions focus on two JA programs: “It’s My Future” and “Career Success” and are on May 10 at Colorado Mountain College.
“LDM Global focuses on building a great culture and team in its Steamboat Springs office and around the world,” Gremminger said. “We think it’s important to support and mentor our community’s students in the same way that we focus on developing our employees’ skills through trainings and leadership opportunities.”
Junior Achievement students are equipped to recognize and seize opportunity. They have a sense of personal economic empowerment and are proven to be more optimistic about achieving future success than their peers, expanding their ability to flourish and achieve earned success.
“Junior Achievement’s volunteer-delivered programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy, and use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential,” said Sally Messinger, Junior Achievement Rocky Mountain District Manager. “Thank you, LDM Global, for your commitment to our next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs.”
