At the expense of about $25 / student, JA programs will impact
over 5,000 students in the 2015 - 2016 school year. Your partnership will
support existing JA programs and extend our reach by making new programs
possible one student at a time!
Junior Achievement of Abilene (JA) is the Big Country's representation
of the world's largest organization dedicated to economic education for young
people. In the Big Country since 1983, Junior Achievement reaches about 5,000
Kindergarten through 12th grade Big Country students through about 200
volunteers each school year.
By reaching our goal of $35,000 this fall, JA will be able to
provide nearly 6,000 Big Country students with life changing financial skills
JA is on the verge of some really significant progress in
Abilene and surrounding communities as we introduce or continue financial
literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programs in 8 school districts:
Abilene, Baird, Brownwood, Clyde, Eula, Jim Ned, Sweetwater, and Wylie.
you for your support,
Evan Simmons, Executive Director
