JACF Leadership Council

The JA Leadership Council consists of professionals in Central Florida who want to have a direct impact on the students served by Junior Achievement of Central Florida. 

The Council members form a critical bridge to our business community through public relations, volunteer recruitment and fundraising efforts, and awareness.  The Council meets bi-monthly, convening to learn more about the programs and work of Junior Achievement of Central Florida, as well as meet like-minded professionals throughout the region. Each member is expected to be willing to secure resources from their organizations and from others to support the vision of Junior Achievement of Central Florida. More information regarding Leadership Council Member Expectations can be found here
