Great Days of Service is one of the largest community volunteer events in the nation. Volunteers from the Primerica Home Office participate every year in the annual program spearheaded by the Gwinnett Collation for Health & Human Services.

This year, the Primerica volunteer team worked on a multitude of projects at the campus, including yard work, painting benches, cleaning and organizing storage rooms, repairing and replacing raised garden beds, and even building a puppet theater.

Boys & Girls Clubs provide a safe place for young people to learn and grow while helping them reach their full potential. The Lawrenceville club serves approximately 280 kids and teens ages 6-18 per day.

This is Primerica’s 16th time participating in Great Days of Service.

The Primerica Foundation, along with The United Way of Greater Atlanta and other partners, aims to take on student hunger within the Gwinnett County School District thanks to school level non-profit organizations, one of which was started by a tenth grader. The Primerica Foundation is committed to supporting community causes that contribute to self-sufficiency for low-to-moderate income families and individuals.

Now that they’ve been given $25,000 in seed money to get started, a discreet on-campus food pantry at Peachtree Ridge High School in Suwanee and an elaborate community garden at Meadowcreek High School in Norcross will have the funds to watch these projects grow. The “micro-grants” were awarded through the inaugural Spark Prize Gwinnett, a newly formed non-profit competition to recognize community members who are addressing areas of concern in hunger, health, education, income, and homelessness within the county.

Students who visit the Primerica storefront, located in Finance Park, will learn the financial principles of “how money works” and the importance of income protection and debt management. This next generation experiential learning experience shows students how the financial decisions they make today can impact their future.

The positive impact that Junior Achievement has on youth is truly extraordinary. More than 80% of middle school students report understanding the concept of a budget after experiencing their curriculum. Junior Achievement’s long-term goal is to educate students about their finances and encourage them to set future educational, career and financial goals for themselves.

The new Junior Achievement Discovery Center at Gwinnett shows what can happen when businesses, government and nonprofits come together to identify issues and work in collaboration to solve them. Together with companies like Primerica, Junior Achievement of Georgia is bringing positive and progressive opportunities to the community and changing the face of financial literacy in Gwinnett County.
