My Personal Fundraising Page
I recently again registered to participate in the 2019 Junior Achievement Bowl-A-Thon!
Junior Achievement (JA) is the world's largest organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in global economy. Through a dedicated volunteer network, Junior Achievement provides in-school and after-school programs for students which focus on three key content areas: entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness.
Your help will make a difference! Please consider supporting me by making a donation in any amount.
What does my gift accomplish?
The learning and experiences of each JA student is made possible with just a $25 investment. This simple investment will last a lifetime. Your $25 gift will shape a child's success today and success for us all tomorrow.
▲ One teacher recently commented after her JA experience, "I believe my students are more prepared for the future especially related to decision making, finance, and budgeting."
▲ Student: "I wanted to tell you because of this class I am going to start my own business. I really didn't know what I was going to do besides play football. Now I know. I am going to go to school for business education."
▲ "What I learned from my Junior Achievement class that I didn't know before . . . How to fill out taxes – What my income would do for my future job – How hard it is to staff a business – Why it is important to go to college – Showed what I want to do with my life – Thank you." - Middle School Student
▲ "The best thing about Junior Achievement is . . . Learning about financial matters so I can be prepared for the future." Marcus - High school Student
▲ "As I look back on it, Junior Achievement was an experience that not only prepared me for college, but also got me acclimated to working with a team." - student
▲ "Junior Achievement teaches kids (like us) how to make first impressions, identify your skills, to interpret employment ads, what to say during an interview, how to find and chose a job, how to build a resume, how to plan your budgets, how to calculate credits, about the stock market, and so many more economic things. I am inspired by my JA volunteer's lessons. Because of this amazing program, my JA volunteer has taught me a lot! Also because of this program I now know what I want to be when I grow up and I know how to get there. Thank you so much Junior Achievement!" Kelly middle school student
