The Junior Achievement of South Florida Board of Directors is composed of local community leaders with a strong and balanced blend of skills and experience, providing guidance and support to JA staff as we strive to uphold our mission.


The Board exercises overall responsibility for the direction of JA, while also providing advice and counsel on a broad range of operating protocols. Members of the Board serve on at least one of the eight committees: Audit, Development, Executive, Finance, Governance, Innovative Initiatives, Marketing, and Programs – or on individual event committees.

The diversity of the Board is chosen to reflect a multitude of expertise offerings. All members have a strong and demonstrated commitment to our three pillars: work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy.
