Junior Achievement PSA Calls on Volunteers to Change Lives
Junior Achievement PSA Shows How Volunteers Can Give Young People Life Skills Not Always Taught in School
Too many young people are leaving school without critical life skills needed to reach their potential as adults. These include financial literacy, work and career readiness, and an understanding of how business works.
Junior Achievement (JA) is the nation’s leading 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization committed to helping young people connect what they learn in school to life outside the classroom. Our learning experiences are shown to help students better understand how money works, how today’s education ties to tomorrow’s careers, and the importance of entrepreneurship. But JA can’t deliver these learning experiences without the help of community volunteers. That’s why JA is launching a new PSA campaign to engage volunteers – Game-Changers: Leveling the Playing Field for Today’s Kids and Tomorrow’s Adults
We’ve all heard the stories about how Americans don’t have enough in emergency savings, how they aren’t saving enough for retirement, how they are amassing student loan debt that their jobs can’t pay off, and how most small businesses fail due to a lack of business acumen. JA is working to give young people the knowledge and tools needed to navigate these challenges to become better prepared adults.
Please help us share this important message – available as a Television PSA that encourages potential volunteers to visit JA.org/Volunteer, where they can connect with Junior Achievement in their community.
Thank you so much for your support,
