Starting this December 1, 2015 on #GivingTuesday, help Junior Achievement of Dallas achieve our focus to provide business role models, basic business skills, and financial literacy to 100% of the most at-risk students in the Dallas community. Our programs give K-12 students the essential financial literacy and business skills necessary to be successful in the global economy of today. Help us reach 50,000 students during the 2015-16 school year!

Approximately 70% of students currently inspired by JA volunteers come from economically disadvantaged homes, an income and asset poor household. This economic trend is increasingly prevalent in JA of Dallas' three priority districts-Dallas, Irving, and Richardson ISDs, which all rest within Dallas County. The U.S. Census Bureau's 5 year estimate for Income Poverty Rate in Dallas County is 19.1%, nearly 2% higher than the state of Texas' and 4% higher than the U.S. Income Poverty Rate.


JA of Dallas' focus is to provide business role models, basic business skills, and financial literacy to 100% of the most at-risk students. The #JADHero project's goal of raising $50,000 will directly impact over 1,500 Dallas area K-12 students by making it possible for them to participate in JA programs.

Long-Term Impact

If the #JADHero project is funded, we will be one step closer to achieving our 2015-16 school year goal of reaching 50,000 students with our financial literacy and economic education programs, lead by trained volunteers. We are estimated to experience a 5% growth in student reach each year, until 2019. In order to achieve this level of impact, it is important for projects such as this to receive full support.
