Annual Report 2018

Annual Report   

E       ach year, Junior Achievement of Central Virginia continues to grow. Whether

we increase the number of cities and counties we serve, the number of students
served, or the sheer impact of the programs, one fact remains the same...We can't
do it without you.

You are the volunteers who give students the real-world perspective in matters of
career, ethics, entrepreneurship and budgeting. Your belief in the boundless
potential of young people is an inspiration.

You are the donors who make everything we do possible with your ongoing
support and sponsorships. You see the educational and motivational impact of
JA’s relevant, hands-on learning.

You made it possible to complete the new JA Finance Park and JA Career Center.
This state-of-the-art facility, located in Libbie Mill Library, was a monumental
project that has resulted in the empowerment of more students than ever before.
A very special thank you goes out to our capital campaign donors for making this
vision a reality.

Every time you volunteer in a classroom, make a donation, and mentor students
in JA Finance Park, you inspire young people to become stronger and more
confident in life skills.  Junior Achievement gives students access to success –
access they would not have without your contributions of time and treasure.

Thank you for giving students throughout Central Virginia the inspiration needed
to succeed.
