Challenge

For many families, economic challenges are a harsh reality. As a result, parents with low to moderate incomes often are not able to model and reinforce economic success factors for their children. Youngsters from these economically disadvantaged homes can especially benefit from positive adult role models and focused programming that teaches the value of education and an understanding of the workforce expectations and needs.

Solution

Our programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.

Long-Term Impact

We will provide Junior Achievement's program to 1,250 students attending Miami Dade County Public Schools thanks to the involvement of over 50 volunteers. As a result, students become better informed citizens, consumers, employees, and employers.
