With looming college debt, complex retirement plans and a post-recession 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 spirits 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 K-12 students in Metro Denver, Northern Colorado, Southern Wyoming and Colorado mountain communities. Every year, we receive more requests for JA volunteers than we are able to fulfill.
Through volunteer partnerships from organizations large and small, JA volunteers inspire, prepare and empower. They band together to teach the importance of workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy. By representing your company and industry to students, JA volunteers help students discover the dignity of work through the power of example. They sharpen their own skills while changing current statistics regarding America’s competitiveness.
With several signature events throughout the year, including a Golf Classic, the JA Stock Market Challenge and the renowned Colorado Business Hall of Fame, you have multiple opportunities to support JA – and have fun doing it!
Supporting JA is one business decision you’ll never regret. Whether your company signs on to provide classroom volunteers or to sponsor an event, you’re making a solid investment in the next generation of Colorado workers. Our generous supporters are vital in allowing us to inspire the next generation of business leaders at no cost to students or schools.
