JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT RECEIVES GRANT FROM STATE FARM
Funding Supports Junior Achievement Work Readiness & Financial Literacy programs for At-Risk Children
The grants, from State Farm Insurance, are part of a larger statewide initiative totaling $60,000 that will support Junior Achievement programs in eleven localities throughout Florida, enabling over 5,000 young people to participate in JA's nationally recognized economic education programs.
"JA programs benefit all students," shares Jose Soto, State Farm Community Public Affairs Specialist, "however, Junior Achievement targets schools with a high percentage of low to moderate income students because they are more likely to derive greater benefit from the programs."
