We reached 52,881 students during the 2014-15 school year with our financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship programs.
In other words, 42% of students in Duval County Public Schools participated in a Junior Achievement program last school year.
We are excited to share some highlights from JA USA’s end-of-year results. These results demonstrate the impact our organization, volunteers and donors are making on the lives of young people in North Florida.
For the first time in its 52-year history, JA of North Florida is in the top 25 of the 115 JA Areas in the United States, and is now the second largest JA Area in the state of Florida, second only to JA of Tampa Bay!
Last school year, the amount of time volunteers spent with students teaching JA increased.
JA of North Florida volunteers spent more hours per student than the national average.
We are proud to announce JA of North Florida is 23rd out of 115 JA Areas in the nation in market share, and #1 of the nine JA Areas in Florida!
These numbers reflect the strength of this community of JA supporters. Give yourself a hand!
