Giving Back Image of the Week


Junior Achievement
Cork, Ireland

Johnson & Johnson companies in Cork work with Junior Achievement at local schools on programs that encourage young people to stay in school and complete their education. These programs provide coaching on personal development, self-esteem and goal setting. Employees serve as mentors to the students, introducing them to a variety of careers in science and pharmaceuticals.
