It’s not too late to prepare our children for the future. Let’s get them ready!

Support Books, Bucks & Backpacks To Inspire Tomorrows For Today’s Students

CHAMPIONED BY

Join Junior Achievement of South Florida in a campaign to bring financial, reading and health literacy to children and families in Broward County

COVID-19 Pandemic makes improving financial literacy more important than ever!

WHY FINANCIAL LITERACY MATTERS

DID YOU KNOW?

  • 33% OF ADULTS HAVE ZERO SAVED FOR RETIREMENT 
  • 44% DON’T HAVE ENOUGH CASH TO COVER A $400 EMERGENCY 
  • 38% OF U.S. HOUSEHOLDS HAVE CREDIT CARD DEBT

A core pillar of Junior Achievement’s mission is to prepare a generation that is more financially knowledgeable, responsible, and empowered. Research shows that with these skills they will have greater ability to improve their financial health and unlock economic potential. This campaign is designed to address the financial literacy divide by bringing this critical education to more children and their families.

Junior Achievement of South Florida is joining forces with education partners, local businesses and healthcare providers for the Books, Bucks & Backpacks campaign to spread reading, financial and health literacy to more than 5,000 children and families. Financial education can change lives and we’re doing something about it.

Join the movement by donating to the Books, Bucks & Backpacks financial literacy campaign to help prepare children and families with knowledge they need to make it through times like these.

Junior Achievement provides our students with hands on, experiential learning opportunities beyond what is found in the everyday classroom. The soft skills they’ve developed help transform them from a consumer of static educational information to active consumers, business professionals and entrepreneurs! With their diverse programs, JA has successfully engaged all of our students and empowered them to embrace relationships within the community.
