Salah Charitable Foundation Supports Innovative High School Program

Thanks to a generous gift from the Salah Charitable Foundation, Junior Achievement of South Florida can continue preparing youth to be the employees, consumers and business owners of the future through its innovative JA Experience at Lauderhill 6-12 program. 
"We are excited to be part of the creation of a culture that fosters high expectations resulting in engaged and high performing high school students." - George Taylor Esq., with the firm Brinkley Morgan and a Board Member of the Salah Charitable Foundation.
JA Experience re-engineers high school education, moving away from learning in silos to instead infusing key concepts across all subjects. Students are encouraged to discover solutions to real-challenges, connect the relevancy of education and develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to thrive in today's ever-evolving economy.

Junior Achievement Celebrates Entrepreneurship Month
"Success is not the absence of failure; it's the persistence through failure." - Aisha Tyler, Actress

JA is asking our students, volunteers, and alumni about the best qualities of entrepreneurship and how they utilize these qualities in their daily lives. Successful entrepreneurs are confident, creative, competitive, have strong people skills, determined and are open-minded self-starters. Check out how our 5th grade students are already practicing persistence :

Thank you to all the officials who have already stopped by for a visit this school year: County Commissioner Chip LaMarca (top left), Coconut Creek Commissioner Becky Tooley (top right), North Lauderdale Vice Mayor Rich Moyle (bottom left) and Margate Vice Mayor Anthony Caggiano (bottom right).
