August 1, 2022 – Junior Achievement of Greater Kansas City is thrilled to launch a collaboration with Charlie Hustle for their new communi-TEE design. The new design takes the iconic and favorite KC heart design and combines it with the entrepreneurial spirit and focus of Junior Achievement of Greater Kansas City programming. You can purchase the exclusive shirt HERE.
With elements of idea generation, financial management, career exploration and more, the new design represents the fun and interactive opportunity that students experience at JA BizTown, presented by CommunityAmerica Credit Union. JA BizTown is a field trip experience for Kansas City area students which combines classroom learning with a field trip opportunity to a simulated Kansas City economy. Students are given a job in a storefront and learn teamwork, earn & spend money, vote and more. JA BizTown connects the dots between their in-school lessons and the real-world.
Charlie Hustle has a storefront at JA BizTown. Student employees at Charlie Hustle include the CEO, CFO, and Creative Designer, amongst others. Students that visit Charlie Hustle can design their own KC Heart shirt design and purchase merchandise!
Greg Moore, Chief Operating Officer at Charlie Hustle, noted that BizTown fits well with Charlie Hustle’s goals and business plan: “As a small business that seeks to evoke happiness through designs, apparel, and community involvement, Charlie Hustle is thrilled to have a storefront at this unique learning experience. It’s exciting to know that JA BizTown students are seeing everything that goes into making a small business successful. We need more learning experiences like this, which is why Charlie Hustle is ecstatic to be a part of this one.“
