Richard Lewis Facilitates Junior Achievement Workshop
Denver, Colorado, February 18, 2010- RTL Networks, Inc. has been a long standing advocate of corporate responsibility and community activism. In combination with President and CEO, Richard Lewis’ passion for education, one way that RTL Networks, Inc. involves itself with the community is through Junior Achievement. On Tuesday, February 9th, 2010 Lewis conducted facilitated a Junior Achievement workshop titled, “Capitalism with a Conscience;” which he does annually.
In the special presentation, sponsored by Wells Fargo, students are exposed to the real world concepts of ethics and capitalism. Since such serious topics tend to bore even well versed adults, Junior Achievement has structured a curriculum that facilitates case studies, discussions and even self evaluation to keep students intrigued. Richard Lewis and RTL Networks, Inc. support Junior Achievement as often as possible by volunteering to facilitate workshops such as “Capitalism with a Conscience” and encourages RTL employees to also get involved.
One way in which RTL Networks, Inc. employees have gotten involved, is by participating in JA’s largest fundraising activity, the Bowl-a-Thon. For the past two years, RTL employees have raised funds independently for the opportunity to have a fun filled day of bowling and pizza, and to support the financial needs of the JA organization. Additionally, employees such as Marketing Manager, Danielle Brooks also volunteer for JA on behalf of RTL Networks, Inc. Brooks facilitated a “Presentation Skills” workshop for the 2009 JA Business Week saying, “working with JA students is truly rewarding because they are the leaders of tomorrow”. Junior Achievement strives to promote “Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship and Work Readiness” for students from Kindergarten through high school. RTL Networks, Inc. whole heartedly believes in the JA mission and will continue to support this phenomenal organization.
