The United States has the highest income inequality of any G7 Nation. The wealth gap between the richest and poorest families has doubled in the last two decades. On top of that, the economic fallout from the COVID-19 crisis is having an outsized impact on young people.
To end the cycle of poverty, we need to act now and act together. That’s the mission of Junior Achievement of South Florida. With your involvement and financial support, we can reach more than 50,000 students each year with the workforce readiness, financial literacy and entrepreneurship skills. These skills are the keys to unlock the hope, opportunities and possibilities that will define the future of a generation – and the future of our community.
