JA Global Marketplace provides practical information about the global economy and its effect on students’ daily lives. Students explore six key aspects of the global economy. Following participation in the program, students
will be able to:

• Demonstrate their understanding of these six aspects to analyze historical events and contemporary international business concepts and practices.

• Apply their knowledge of the global economy to their daily lives.

DFS Guam recruited 33 employee’s to teach international business concepts to over 300 eighth grade students at Jose Rios Middle School.

Beth Lizama, Executive Director of Junior Achievement of Guam, said, “The students learned valuable skills that they can apply to daily lives. They were engaged in activities that raise their awareness of the culture of
conducting business internationally.

This is especially important to our  Guam students who mingle with tourists from around the world whenever they are out shopping or eating in restaurants. She added, on behalf of the JA Board, thank you to DFS Guam, students, parents and Jose Rios Middle School teachers and administrators who helped make this program successful”.
