TOMORROW NEEDS YOU TODAY For many youth, tomorrow is their greatest hope- and their biggest fear. A recent survey of teens from JA and ENGINE Insights shows that 91% of young people are looking for additional support this school year. 39% believe they are behind educationally due to the pandemic, and more than a third (34%) say they need “emotional support” from caring adults to help their “mental wellbeing.” “Who will I be?” “ What role will I play?” “ And, how will I get there? These are just some of the questions our teens have today about their future. JA is helping students realize the opportunities for tomorrow by preparing them to manage their finances, become entrepreneurs and develop the job skills that are the foundation for economic self-sufficiency. We’re providing programs and experiences that build financial capability and work skills, promote entrepreneurial thinking and foster resiliency to navigate uncertain times. And we’re providing mentors to encourage them and show them the way. Help us inspire their tomorrows TODAY! Your gift to JA will help more students be prepared and inspired as we recover from the pandemic and look toward tomorrow. $500 will support an entire classroom’ of students preparing to be work and career ready $250 will support in-person and virtual volunteer resources $100 will support two students utilizing JA’s new self-guided resources $50 will support one student participating in JA financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship programs.
