“It doesn’t feel like volunteer work, because you are having fun too! Thank you Junior Achievement of South Florida for allowing RVG & Company the opportunity to volunteer at JA World and be part of your family.” – Brittany Nehring, RVG & Company Employee.
Each year, more than 7,000 trained volunteer role models and mentors from the local community help teach core principles around financial literacy, career skills and entrepreneurship, to students in the classrooms and at JA World Huizenga Center at the Lillian S. Wells Pavilion. These mentors include working and retired business professionals, corporate teams, parents, and college students. We have a wide range of opportunities from a few hours in JA BizTown guiding 5th-grade students as they learn how a real city operates or JA Finance Park helping 8th grade students on how to manage their personal finance through budgeting to classroom experiences that range from once a week to 15 sessions with high school students in JA Fellows as they operate their own real business throughout the school year.
Watch Brittany’s testimonial and be inspired to volunteer your time for any worthwhile organization, like JA, that has a lasting impact on our community.

“JA Is Brewing Up Something Special For Their 60th Anniversary”
December 2018 Issue
Junior Achievement of South Florida was founded locally in 1959 by the Fort Lauderdale Rotary Club and is celebrating its 60th anniversary of training the next generation of business leaders, employees and consumers by educating students about entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy.
An organization that exemplifies the tenants of Junior Achievement and has been a success for close to ten years is Funky Buddha Brewery.The brewery started out with small batch, hand-crafted beers and growing to become one of Florida’s most recognized and awarded breweries…
…It was a natural fit that Funky Buddha Brewery became involved with Junior Achievement’s premier annual event – JA World Uncorked, a Circle of Wise Women signature event.
