A Message from JASWIN
Dear Friends and Supporters,
With your support and engagement, JA programs inspired and prepared more than 27,000 Southwestern Indiana and Southeastern Illinois students in 2016-17. You may have inspired young people through one of our experiential in-classroom programs or a hands-on eye-opening JA Job Shadow, shared your expertise with our Board, or invested financially to bring JA programs to more future leaders, consumers, and citizens. Your partnership made a measureable difference in students' lives by developing their skills and sending an important message that you believe in them and in their future.
This year has been one of growth for JA. Our team grew stronger, our supporters deepened their connections, and we impacted kids in ways like never before. We expanded our reach to new schools, introduced new technology to our programs, and partnered with other community service organizations.
There are exciting things to come as we look toward moving JA – and our region – to the next level. Imagine our students who are hopeful for their future, passionate about their opportunities, and more prepared than ever for the challenges that face them. We say it all the time, and it remains true: We can't do what we do without you.
Our sincerest thank you for your support, your passion, and your commitment to help JA take another step toward our goal of giving this generation unparalleled hope of the future and the skills to turn their dreams into reality.
