All summer long we’re bringing our programs in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship to summer camps across Jacksonville.
To fund these summer program materials we are running a crowdfunding campaign. Click here to view our progress: http://bit.ly/JAsummer
From now until August 18 our goal is to raise $40,000.
Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to!
YMCA camp learning where their interests lie in different career clusters.
Wayman Community Development Corporation camp became entrepreneurs for the day and presented their business plans to fellow students.
Vision For Excellence held a JA Boy$ group focusing on building their personal brands.
The Carpenter’s Shop Center camp taught “JA Ourselves” to 6 year olds.
The Bridge of Northeast Florida held a JA Boy$ group at its DuPont Middle Team Up site.
SunTrust employees, including JA Board Member Lauren Butler (pictured), taught JA in a Day to Kamp Kenzie.
During JA Girl$ at The Bridge of Northeast Florida summer camp, girls researched different careers and the associated skill requirements.
Stay tuned for more summer camp updates!
