Saunders College of Business and Junior Achievement of Rochester are teaming up with the Rochester City School District for an all-day learning marathon to educate K-6 children in School No. 50 about business, economics and free enterprise.

Saunders College of Business will once again go “elementary” at School No. 50 on Friday, March 31.

The business college at Rochester Institute of Technology and Junior Achievement of Rochester are teaming up with the Rochester City School District for the all-day learning marathon to educate K-6 children about business, economics and free enterprise. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Helen Barrett Montgomery School No. 50, 301 Seneca Ave.

“It’s never too early to start familiarizing young people with business concepts,” said Peter Rosenthal, senior associate director of student services at Saunders College. “Our country’s free-market system depends on the contributions of, and decisions made by, citizens and workers. They make choices every day about their needs and wants, and they need to address constraints on resources such as time and money.

“This marks the 12th year that we have matched a Saunders College of Business student with an RIT alumnus or other working professional for a day to introduce these economic concepts through discussions and hands-on activities.”
