Junior Achievement of Central Florida (JA) empowers young
people to own their economic success, plan for their future and make smart
academic and economic choices. Our volunteer-delivered K-12 programs prepare
all graduating students in
Central Florida to be financially literate; grounded in free enterprise,
leadership and entrepreneurial principles; and ready for the workforce. JA
programs make a connection between lessons learned in the classroom and
real-world applications - through relevant, interactive programming. Our goal
is for every student
to be equipped with the right tools to take advantage of the abundant
opportunities in America's free enterprise system. JA is a unique organization because we believe
that every student has the potential to succeed in life - regardless of his or
her background or economic status. JA increases young people's awareness of all
the options life has to offer and helps them realize just how much they can do.
We inspire them to set and attain goals that are personally important to them.
You can't dream big if your world is small. Over the past 50 years, Junior
Achievement of Central Florida has inspired more than a million Central Florida
students. Our goal this year is to reach more students with valuable JA
classroom programs. These accomplishments would not be possible without the
involvement of our dedicated board members, classroom volunteers and generous
supporters. The investment we make in the children of today will pay dividends
in the future as they mature into productive community members and leaders.
