NATIONAL ACADEMY FOUNDATION
KPMG Foundation's strategic collaboration with the National Academy Foundation (NAF) embodies our belief in expanding horizons, and our alignment with KPMG LLP's corporate responsibility.
NAF is a leader in preparing young people for college and career success. With a focus on industry-focused curricula, work-based learning experiences, and business partner expertise, it has grown since 1982 to 500 business academies serving more than 50,000 students, mostly in urban areas. About 90 percent of these students graduate high school and four out of five NAF students go on to college or other post-secondary education.
In addition to committing financial support, KPMG Foundation launched a comprehensive, cross-platform alliance with NAF in fiscal 2011 to strengthen high school accounting education at NAF's finance academies nationwide.
Through this collaboration, volunteer KPMG professionals inject industry relevance into the classroom. They share their knowledge with students through job shadowing, mock interviews, guest-speaking, and resume/portfolio reviews.
Reaching further, the Foundation engaged volunteer accounting professors who are alumni of The PhD Project, to provide professional guidance to NAF's accounting curriculum.
In 2012 KPMG Foundation set in motion a plan to launch a six year, $1,750,000 partnership commitment to Junior Achievement, the world's largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential programs.
Extending KPMG Foundation's workforce readiness and diversity pipeline strategies into middle and secondary school education, we will become a major funder of Junior Achievement starting in fiscal 2013. We will leverage financial support by encouraging alumni and current doctoral students of The PhD Project to interact with Junior Achievement students in middle and high schools across the country. KPMG LLP Partner Larry Leva serves as Chair of the Board of Directors of JA USA.
