A new survey by Junior Achievement (JA) and Citizens Bank shows that 63 percent of teens believe they will be financially independent of their parents by the age of 30, meaning that more than a third of teens surveyed do not hold this belief. The survey is being released in conjunction with Financial Literacy Month, which is April.
Junior Achievement of Greater Washington is pleased to announce the appointment of five new Board members: Julie Coons of the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce, John Durrant of Capital One, Cecilia Hodges of M&T Bank, Eric Lewis of BB&T, and Neil Smith of CrossCountry Consulting.
