Lee High School students participated in JA’s “Skills to Achieve” program at Macquarie Group’s Jacksonville office.

The students learned what skills are necessary to work at Macquarie Group and succeed in the finance industry. Company volunteers taught Junior Achievement lessons that further discussed tools and skills required to earn and keep a job in high-growth career industries.

Thank you Macquarie volunteers!
