Junior Achievement of South Florida's interactive career exploration program, JA Inspire, was a major success last week! 2,000 students from schools across Broward County discovered potential career paths from 35+ interactive exhibitors representing various industries.
There was also a special presentation by JA Fellows students from Dillard High School to local leaders introducing the school safety product.
Latinos In Action students from Monarch High School have set the bar high when it comes to giving back. This dedicated group often volunteers with 5th grade students participating in the JA BizTown program at JA World. We are inspired by these high school students who are having an impact on the students coming behind them.Thank you for your commitment!
"I had a really fun time meeting the kids and getting to know them, leading them in life was exciting and adventurous." - Tiffany, 12th Grade

It's been an exciting year for our JA Career Bound students! They recently visited
Broward Health Coral Springs and met the leadership team, as well as learned CPR, took a tour of the Radiology department and watched a surgical robot demonstration.
Special thanks to some of our elected officials who took time from their busy schedules to tour JA World Huizenga Center at the Lillian S. Wells Pavilion and inspire the students we serve.
Recently visiting JA were (top row, left to right) County Commissioner Michael Udine, State Representative Ted Deutch, City of Parkland Commissioner Bob Mayersohn and City of Hollywood Commissioner Richard Blattner.
