External Affairs Coordinator, Cabot Oil & Gas
Cabot & Junior Achievement have partnered to teach school age students important life skills, such as financial literacy and career readiness.
Last year Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation pledged to support 1,000 new students through Junior Achievement of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s financial literacy and career readiness programming. JA of NEPA has been a vital partner of Cabot’s over the last few years, helping facilitate energy-based curriculum, Opportunities in Energy, in multiple regional high schools.
From the experience of working together on energy curriculum, it became apparent that concepts of financial literacy (budgets, payment options, making choices, etc.) & career readiness (resume building, interview preparation, etc.) went hand-in-hand with the Opportunities in Energy curriculum. While the intention was to start this programming at the beginning of the academic year, the budget stalemate in Harrisburg postponed everything until January.
