Challenge

In a competing global economy, comprised of constant innovation and changing technology, it is critical that education keep pace and prepare students for future career and economic success. For a large number of students in the Dallas area, many of whom come from economically disadvantaged homes, these essential skills are out of reach-not taught in school or by parents at home.

Solution

JA connects volunteers from the business community with young people through the use of JA's proven programs to help students understand how business works while inspiring them to consider the opportunities associated with being an entrepreneur.

Long-Term Impact

JA Dallas strives to impact nearly 52,500 students in the 2016-17 school year through substantial growth in student impact in the Dallas, Irving, and Richardson Independent School Districts. We will instill students with financial management skills that will keep them from falling into poverty.
