Teaching kids about money

JA middle school

Dear Donor,

Since our last report, we didn't get any new donations for this project. But this hasn't stopped us!

We have been able to keep on teaching kids about money and workreadiness thanks to the annual operating budget funds available from individual, business, and foundation support. Additional funding was generated through individuals who provided a financial investment or assisted by donating their time and talents to fund-raising activities held throughout the year.

We are happy to inform you that for the past school year we served 32,500 students in Miami Dade and this 2014-2015 school year we are hoping to reach 35,000!!

So again thanks for your support, and if you'd like to volunteer with us and inspire kids to own their economic success just let us know! You can reach us www.jamiami.org

Thank you!

Empowering youth

Dear Donor,

Thank you for your contribution to Junior Achievement of Greater Miami. So far with the funds raised through GlobalGiving we've been able to fund two elementary classes (42 students)! Thank you!

Your contribution has provided young people with the real-world skills they want and need, like how to manage money, how to prepare for a career, and how to open and run a business. In the process, students were able to connect classroom learning to the real world, which allowed them to recognize the value of staying in school, increasing the likelihood they will graduate. Because of your generosity, more students received life-changing financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship education, and the results are profound.

Thank you again for investing in JA’s young people, helping us teach them about money management and how business works. This education will allow them to compete in the workforce and become successful professionals, which will strengthen the economic health of our community and nation. Truly, we believe this is the most important investment that you will make all year. It is certainly the most appreciated.

We remain grateful for your gift and look forward to your continued partnership.

Making a difference

Thanks to the donations received so far we were able to provide our programs to 25 elementary school students attending Kensington Park Elementary School. 96% of the student population at this school is Hispanic and 86.4% receive free/reduced lunch.

Thanks to you, students were able to develop: 

  • Economic knowledge and understanding through experiential, hands-on learning.

  • Positive attitudes toward work and their contributions to a diverse society.

  • The desire to stay in school and develop their abilities and skills.

  • Mentor relationships with caring adults throughout the community.

  • Business and education partnerships that create a bridge between the classroom and the workplace.

  • Awareness of local businesses, industries and career opportunities.

We are gratful for your donation and for sharing JA’s vision for tomorrow’s youth and recognize the value of our far-reaching programs.
