Challenge

A report by the Alliance for Excellent Education reports that our young people are not prepared for the workforce. It is critical for professional role models to inspire students in the classroom when two thirds of students either drop out or graduate without the skills needed to succeed in the workplace. Junior Achievement of Dallas equips corporate and community volunteers with strong financial education curriculum and connects them with a classroom of students.

Solution

Students make a connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world as the participate in activities designed to provide a solid foundation in financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship through Junior Achievement programs. They are better equipped to proactively manage their finances, understand the need for an entrepreneurial spirit, and develop skills that will be recognized and valuable in a global workforce.

Long-Term Impact

With your support, 2,500 students will be one step closer to being successful and contributing members of society, inspired to make smart academic and economic choices through Junior Achievement programs. This means less young people will fall into poverty when they become adults.
