Give Students a Gift That 
Will Last a Lifetime!

A want versus a need. How to create and maintain a budget. Don't you wish that someone had taught you those things as you were growing up? Now there is someone. YOU!
If you've been meaning to make a contribution, now's the time. Your donation today makes it possible for students to take control of their future. 
"We hear all the time that kids can't balance a checkbook but the JA programs help them not only do these kinds of things but they help them to see what it takes to run a business. What are the economics that are involved in that?  It helps them run their own lives better." - B'Port teacher

You have the power to give a student the successful future they desire. A $25 gift supports a 5-12 week JA program for a student. Let them know they can count on you by making a one-time or reoccurring donation today.
About Junior Achievement
8,000 + young people at nearly 50 schools and organizations benefit from Junior Achievement of Brazoria County programs each year, with help from more than 300 dedicated volunteers. JA programs change lives by giving young people the tools to thrive and teaching three crucial lessons: personal financial responsibility, workforce readiness and entrepreneurial thinking. JA empowers young people to own their economic success. This mission is accomplished through volunteers who take the time to teach JA, provide role model behavior and establish a mentoring relationship with students in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Junior Achievement of Brazoria County serves all school districts in the county as well as private schools, after school and in school groups and organizations.
