Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) January 16, 2013
For more than a century, Corporation Service Company® (CSC®) has helped businesses grow and thrive in a complex global marketplace. Now, CSC is inspiring the next generation of business leaders.
On Thursday, January 17, 2013, the Wilmington-based provider of business, legal and financial services will unveil a new CSC “storefront” within Junior Achievement® of Delaware’s experiential learning center on South Walnut Street, near the Wilmington riverfront.
Called BizTown®, this unique, state-of-the-art learning laboratory invites children in grades four through seven to discover firsthand how the free enterprise system works. Within sixteen branded establishments on site, students run stores, pay taxes, vote, make purchases, and even become philanthropists.
At the CSC storefront, students working as CSC “Incorporation Specialists” are empowered to help other BizTown businesses launch new enterprises, get the right licenses and permits, and more. Since it opened in 2004, Junior Achievement BizTown has hosted 35,000 students from Delaware and beyond. In 2012 alone, 5,000 students sharpened their business skills here.
During the January 17 event, representatives from CSC’s senior management will be on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and students from McCullough Middle School in New Castle, Delaware, will run BizTown with help from CSC employee volunteers.
“A CSC partnership with Junior Achievement is a natural fit,” says Brett Davis, vice president at CSC. “While CSC makes business easier and more profitable for corporations around the world, Junior Achievement is preparing the next generation of bright minds to lead those businesses. We’re honored to lend our support to such an important organization.”
