This Holiday Season, Make a Meaningful
Investment in our Most Innovative Asset — Our Kids!

“Nothing Happens Unless We First Dream It.” – Carl Sanburg

The future of South Florida depends on the success of the 80,000+ kids we serve. That’s why we are asking you to support Junior Achievement of South Florida year-end fundraising campaign, Give the Gift of Possibilities.

Outdated school-models struggle to provide the personalized, relevant learning experiences that today’s students need to stay connected resulting in increased dropout rates and decreased student engagement.

  • 18.5% of students are chronically absent from school
  • 13% of students are not completing high school
  • 26% of 5th graders report not feeling engaged at school which increases to 45% disengagement by 12th grade

JA programs tackle key issues facing today’s kids:

  • Reducing dropout rates through engaging and relevant programming that connects school to career success. JA students have graduation rates of 93%, far greater than the national average.
  • Closing the financial literacy gap by building sound money management skills early in life when they matter most.
  • Developing career-readiness through leadership, teamwork, problem solving and communication activities.
  • Sparking entrepreneurial spirit and business ownership dreams that can change a family’s destiny.
  • Introducing students to a wide variety of industries and careers to motivate their own meaningful career paths.

This season of giving, we hope you will consider bringing new life-changing opportunities to more students like our alumni above. An end of the year gift to JA is an investment in the next generation and will fuel 80,000+ imaginations.

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to succeed. We also believe that JA is the best investment you can make in the future of our community. Make a tax-deductible donation today. Your gift matters! You will help us reach more students and give them the skillset and mindset they need to succeed. THEY will drive our future economy.

Thank you for your consideration as you make your year-end gifts, big or small. We wish you a very happy holiday season.
