What we'd write in your yearbook. Later this summer, stay tuned for a report card on all that we achieved with your help during the 2014-2015 school year.
By this time next week, we will be closing the books on an outstanding 2014-2015 school year, and we are just a few short months away from the opening of our second financial literacy center in the region, JA Finance Park? Prince George's County where we will inspire 9,000 Prince George's County Public School students a year. 

Today, will you give a gift to help us finish the year strong, and be prepared for what is in store for next year?

This fall, we will also step up our game to significantly increase the number of our region's high school students who will get a look into the world of work through the  JA Job Shadow? . We have our sights set on inspiring over 61,000  of our region's young people to be financially capable and tenacious, equipped with the tools to think outside the box, manage risk effectively, and welcome opportunity. 


Thanks for all that you do!
