Helping Teens Understand the Impact of COVID-19
Posted in: Uncategorized
Here’s a sampling of some of the free resources Junior Achievement has made available to the public during the pandemic crisis. These guides were designed to answer teens’ questions about the economic implications of COVID-19. The guides use relatable examples to explain what a recession is, how the Federal Reserve works, and steps being taken by government and the private sector to mitigate the economic impact associated with the virus. It also addresses frequently asked questions, including “Why are some store shelves empty?”, “Why are some people losing their jobs?” and “Are we going into a recession, or even a depression?” Our goal is to help teens better understand the impact of social distancing on the virus and our economy.
