Financial Literacy is Key to Their Future Success
Junior Achievement of South Florida is proud to share the success of our Books, Bucks and Backpacks initiative.

On Saturday, July 11th, registered parents and children picked up backpacks filled with financial, health and literacy resources and activities, as well as food provided by Farm Share. This drive thru event helped supply nearly 1,000 backpacks to South Florida families in need.

We could not have accomplished this without the help of our dedicated partners, volunteers and community leaders. We believe that our community plays an integral part in shaping the success of our youth's future. This movement doesn't end here, as we plan on continuing to deliver these resources to our youth and their families.

Ready to help us inspire their tomorrows?

Inspire the Next Generation with Hope and Perspective

Junior Achievement is looking for virtual volunteers to share their “job story”. Our goal is to provide students with a broadened spectrum of jobs in South Florida while also giving guidance, reassurance, and perspective during this pandemic; and provide teachers with a free online resource, easy to assign and easy to access.
