Delta, Junior Achievement prepare youth in Latin America for success

Published on : Wednesday, August 17, 2016

3Delta is strengthening its commitment to education in Latin America and the Caribbean through the expansion of its partnership with Junior Achievement Americas.“Delta is focused on inspiring youth by partnering with world class organizations like Junior Achievement to create educational opportunities in the region,” said Shane Spyak, Delta’s Managing Director – Latin America and the Caribbean. “With this expanded partnership, we now support programs that will give students the opportunity to enhance core business skills and visualize a fulfilling career for themselves under the mentorship of Delta employees.”

Delta will sponsor the JA Job Shadow Program in Argentina, Chile and Mexico, teaching youth about the airline. Classroom sessions will prepare students for a visit to a professional work environment. Students will also learn how to research career opportunities and the skills needed to land and keep their dream jobs.


The JA Company Program curriculum includes business, entrepreneurship and economics for students grades 9 through 12. The program focuses on business fundamentals, while providing a strong focus on social studies, mathematics, reading and writing skills.

Delta began supporting the JA Company of the Year Competition (COY) in 2015, which is a signature showcase for Junior Achievement and the high school students who benefit from the JA Company Program. This annual celebration of success allows young people to demonstrate their business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit in a competitive environment.
