Empower and Connect with Future Leaders at JA Inspire

Do you remember what is was like trying to figure out what you wanted to be when you grew up? It can be a confusing journey! We're looking for businesses to participate in
JA Inspire, an interactive career exploration day that helps today's youth get a clearer understanding of potential career opportunities.

Volunteer Spotlight - Bob Alden 

Junior Achievement of South Florida is fortunate to have so many dedicated volunteers like Bob Alden!
