Student success is central to JA's mission that provides volunteer-driven learning that fosters workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy. JA programs help them identify how to improve their lives by changing certain behaviors related to money, education, and work readiness. We take students from a mindset of "I can't" to "I can."
We believe it’s our responsibility as a community to empower the next generation - to equip them with the skills and knowledge to be successful and pursue their dreams. These are our kids, grandchildren, future colleagues and community leaders. The success of our economy depends on their preparedness.Students participating in JA programs overall are more knowledgeable about developing good money management habits and more prepared than theirpeers for the future workforce.
JA’s programs ignite that spark so they can experience the opportunities and grasp the realities of work and life in the 21st Century. JA, along with a coalition of business leaders and educators, come together to help students embark on their own pathway to success.
We primarily serve low-income Hispanic students where families pay higher prices than higher-income households for nearly every basic necessity. JA’s tools create solutions to eradicate generational poverty in our community because financial ignorance is too great a cost.
