Option One Mortgage and Junior Achievement
Option One Mortgage believes that being a supportive and
involved part of the community should be a priority for any
business. While turning a profit and pleasing customers is
the main focus of every firm, it is important to have a balance
and find time to give back to the community as well. It is
especially beneficial when a company can find a way to get
involved with an organization that actually empowers its own
For Option One Mortgage, Junior Achievement is a natural
fit. The organization nurtures the business people of tomorrow
by teaching them the skills they will need to lead the economy
into the future. It is a great way for Option One Mortgage
to reach future consumers and help them be better prepared
for the financial challenges and choices they will face in
the years to come.
On Job Shadow Day, Junior Achievers visit Option One Mortgage
on site, and learn about the various careers available to
them in the industry.
Option One Mortgage associates also participate by teaching
as a part of Junior Achievement’s “JA in a Day”
program at local high schools.
Option One Mortgage also supports Junior Achievement financially
in a variety of ways. Each year the company hosts an annual
Bowl-a-thon, and by making donations such a recent gift of
$200,000. The monies help pay for students to participate
in Junior Achievement.
Being involved with Junior Achievement is a great way for
Option One Mortgage to help the communities it serves prepare
for a financially responsible tomorrow. It is never too early
to teach kids about the importance of having a realistic financial
plan in life.
