We continue the tradition at Avaron and direct the money of our customers’ and partners Christmas cards and gifts to charity. This year we decided to support the Junior Achievement Estonia program, which injects entrepreneurship and economic thinking into young people. When we asked our colleagues for feedback on this idea, it turned out that Avaron also has several graduates of the Junior Achievement program. The experience of all of them had been very positive. We hope that the contribution of JA will contribute to the growing number of entrepreneurial young people in Estonia.
Last year, we supported the Bullying-Free School, which helps children grow up happier and the world get better and better. We hope that their program will soon reach every Estonian school.
And the year before, we supported the Back to School Project, which brings practitioners in their field to schools to inspire students in different walks of life. A 9-part series of online investment lectures were made with the support of Avaron, where students gained more knowledge about investing in stocks, start-ups, gold, real estate and one’s own company. The nine lectures were watched online by a total of 223 classrooms, or more than 7,000 students, and are also available to watch on YouTube. In December, the Back to School team visited Avaron, which you can see here.
We have previously supported the Youth to School program. In addition, we also support the Youth to Olympics initiative every year.
