Hawthorne Cat, the exclusive Cat equipment dealer in San Diego, the Hawaiian Islands and the Pacific Region, hosted the Junior Achievement of San Diego County (JA San Diego) students from Lincoln High School on June 28, 2022 at Hawthorne's corporate headquarters as part of San Diego Foundation's Summer Enrichment Program.

The JA San Diego students participated in Hawthorne's Job Shadow Program, which is part of the company's Community Outreach Program. Students were shown what the core business was about and how other supporting departments, including marketing, parts, service, information technology, credit and accounting, helped run the company. The students also learned about different career opportunities available to them.

The San Diego Foundation recently awarded $12.3 million in grants to 90 local nonprofit organizations, including JA San Diego, offering hundreds of summer enrichment programs to San Diego Unified School District students benefiting from academic and socio-emotional development opportunities through another summer session of Level Up SD, in partnership with San Diego Unified School District.
