Security Health Plan of Wisconsin Inc. has donated $10,000 to the Portage and Wood County Districts of Junior Achievement of Wisconsin Inc.
The donation will support Junior Achievement’s programs that reach nearly 4,000 elementary and secondary students.
Junior Achievement’s More Than Money program teaches elementary age students about earning, spending, sharing and saving money. Students learn about careers they can pursue and businesses they can start. There are six volunteer-led sessions, each of which includes a healthcare tone within the curriculum.
Junior Achievement Success Schools program is for high school aged students and engages them in experiential learning sessions in work and career readiness. Each of seven volunteer-led sessions has a healthcare highlight – from career opportunities to the importance of leading by making healthy choices.
“We are excited to support a fine community-based program such as Junior Achievement,” said Security Health Plan Chief Administrative Officer Steve Youso. “It’s important we provide our young people with a foundation that will help them pursue career opportunities that are both personally fulfilling and that help them make a difference in their communities.”
Security Health Plan is a medically driven health maintenance organization sponsored by Marshfield Clinic, now serving more than 200,000 residents in 36 counties of northern, western and central Wisconsin. Security Health Plan holds a 4.5-star rating
