Vacu-Man welcomes Junior Achievement back to Hamilton
Vacu-Man is proud to support Junior Achievement, an entrepreneurship education program for young people. We believe that business is one of the oldest and most essential trades on Earth, and it is critical that we invest in the next generation of entrepreneurs. Through Junior Achievement, Vacu-Man has had the opportunity to provide educational resources and support to young people in Hamilton and the surrounding area. We are passionate about giving young people the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in business, and we are proud to be a part of this important program.
The Rotary Club of Hamilton is excited to announce that Junior Achievement will be returning to Hamilton this month. Vacu-Man, a local business specializing in residential and commercial cleaning services, is one of the primary sponsors of this fantastic organization. Junior Achievement provides educational programs for young people that focus on financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. Adam Oldfield, president of Vacu-Man and communication director for the Rotary Club of Hamilton, is a strong supporter of Junior Achievement and is excited to see the organization return to Hamilton. “Junior Achievement is a great way to get kids involved in their community and learn about important life skills,” said Oldfield. “We’re thrilled to be able to sponsor their return to Hamilton.”
MICHELLE OLDFIELD – VICE PRESIDENT (VACU-MAN) WAS A JA STUDENT
It’s been many years since Michelle Oldfield participated in Junior Achievement in Hamilton, but she still remembers the lessons she learned. As the Vice President of Vacu-Man, a family-run business, she has put those skills to good use. “I learned a lot about what it takes to be an entrepreneur,” she says. “It’s not just about having a great idea, but also about being able to execute it and market it.” Vacu-Man has been successful in large part due to Oldfield’s willingness to put those lessons into practice. “I’m so grateful for the opportunity I had to participate in Junior Achievement,” she says. “It’s really helped me develop into the business owner I am today.”
SMALL BUSINESS IS THE LIFE BLOOD OF THE ECONOMY
It’s no secret that small businesses are the lifeblood of the Canadian economy. In fact, according to the Small Business Administration, small businesses make up 80 percent of all employers in the Canada and account for more than half of all private sector employment.
At Vacu-Man, we are proud to do our part in supporting small business and entrepreneurship. Vacu-Man has always believed in hiring local, and as a result, we have been able to help create jobs in our community. We have also been strong supporters of Junior Achievement, an organization that provides young people with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the business world.
We believe that these are exciting times, and the demand for our youth to learn about small business and being an entrepreneur is critical for the economy and for the future of employment for everyone. As a small business operator, I am committed to doing my part to encourage others to branch out and become their own boss. With hard work and determination, anyone can be successful in business. And I firmly believe that the more people who are successful in business, the stronger our economy will be.
We’ve supported many different programs in the surrounding area, including Inner City Children where the program will be setup and operated.
