With looming college debt, complex retirement plans, and a postrecession job market, we must continue to do everything possible to ensure that students are prepared for
the skilled jobs of tomorrow. We must also help young people, who dream of creating opportunities for themselves and others, build a foundation for success in an increasingly competitive global economy. Most of all, we must protect our country’s most important assets – the spirit of enterprise and possibility.
You can help by supporting JA, the largest and most experienced nonprofit dedicated
to inspiring young people to succeed in a global economy.With the demand for Junior Achievement far greater than we are currently able to provide, we have developed a plan that strives to dramatically increase the number of students reached. But we can’t do it without your help.
Curriculum development and revisions, recruitment of volunteers, special events, scholarships, and other student-focused initiatives are just some of the areas that will improve immensely with your generosity.
So what can you do to help? Take your pick!
All of our programs are provided at no cost to schools. We count on financial support from the business community, private and community foundations, special events and individuals. All money raised is utilized locally to provide programs to Metro Denver, Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming students. Every year, we receive more requests for JA volunteers than we are able to fulfill.
With training from JA, you can be in the classroom, helping children learn important concepts surrounding entrepreneurship, financial literacy and workforce readiness.
Take a look at JA’s signature events and learn how your business can help JA, and gain some exposure through participation and sponsorship opportunities.
Like to bowl? Get a team together and participate in our annual JA Bowl-a-Thon. Or if golfing is your hobby, look into our Golf Classic. With four signature events throughout the year, you have multiple opportunities to support JA.
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 4 to 8, 2015. Junior Achievement would like to thank all of the wonderful teachers who welcome JA volunteers into their classrooms. We appreciate you!
