After the craziness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the annual event known as Giving Tuesday is a day-long opportunity to put your dollars toward a cause that's meaningful to you. 

The students we serve at JA are tomorrow's leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs and the future success of your company depends on them. It may seem like a long way off, but today's high school students could be your employees as soon as 2022. Supporting JA programs allows you to play an active role in building your talent pipeline. We hope that you consider making an investment with Junior Achievement of South Florida today.

5 Great Reasons to Give that Can Make you Happy:

1. Giving provides personal satisfaction
2. It's tax deductible
3. You can make a real difference
4. A little bit goes a long way
5. There are many who desperately need your help.

No matter how you decide to donate for #GivingTuesday, thank you for making the world a little bit better!

JA Biz Challenge Prepares Students
For Future Success

Junior Achievement of South Florida invites you to the JA Biz Challenge - where our   JA Experience at Lauderhill 6-12 students will present their 1st Case Study. This presentation will provide a solution to a real business problem posed by one of our JA BizTown businesses. Community leaders acting as "Investors" will listen to solutions provided by the students and invest in those they find most viable.
