COMMUNITY PARTNER

Junior Achievement of South Florida is joining forces with education partners, local businesses and healthcare providers for the Books, Bucks & Backpacks initiative to spread reading, financial and health literacy to children and families. Financial education can change lives and we’re doing something about it.

Saturday, May 21, 2022 – 10 am to 1 pm
JA World Huizenga Center at the Lillian S. Wells Pavilion
1130 Coconut Creek Blvd., Coconut Creek, FL 33066

Let’s prepare our children and families in need for summer success with reading, math and financial literacy materials, healthcare information, and summer safety support.

REGISTER FOR EVENT

Join us for a FREE fun-filled day of summer activities, booths with giveaways, games, books and backpacks, and so much more!

Books, Bucks and Backpacks is a community event where registered families come to JA World to successfully learn how to prepare for summer with safety tips, academic retention and financial literacy education.

Together, We Can Change These Statistics!

SUMMER HEALTH & WELLNESS

  • Over 60% of all summer-related injuries occur among children ages 2-11
  • Studies show children gain weight at a faster rate during the summer months than during the school year
  • 23% of child drownings happen during a family gathering near a pool

PREVENT THE SUMMER SLIDE

  • On average, students lose 17–34% of the prior year’s learning gains 
  • On average, students lose about 20% of school-year gains in reading and 27% in math during the summer break

TEACHING CHILDREN ABOUT MONEY

  • Summer is a great time to teach children the value of savings and money
  • Studies show children establish their financial identities by age 7
  • Financial literacy activities like preparing a budget helps build stronger math skills

Junior Achievement of South Florida empowers our youth with the knowledge, ability and confidence to navigate their futures, drive our economy, and lead our community.

Our ability to impact students is made possible through strong partnerships with schools, businesses and the community. Please consider investing in the future workforce. Their success tomorrow begins with your support today.
