Dear Friends,

It is abundantly clear that the Greater Richmond community is dedicated to
the success of future generations.

Supporters of Junior Achievement of Central Virginia - our volunteers, board,
donors, and educators - inspire young people to succeed. Paths to
success come in many forms. Whether college or certification, military service
or entrepreneurship, at JA, we endorse any endeavor that gives students the 
opportunity to plan for their futures and make smart financial decisions.

The Profile of a Virginia Graduate describes the knowledge, skills, and
experiences that students must attain to be successful after high school.
Created by the State Board of Education, this Profile focuses on the five C's -
Critical thinking, Creative thinking, Collaboration, Communication, and
Citizenship. In order to graduate, all Virginia high school students must
demonstrate content knowledge, workplace skills, community engagement,
civic responsibility, and an ability to explore careers.

We are proud that JA programs align perfectly with the core elements of the
Commonwealth's framework, allowing us the unique opportunity to work
even more closely with school leadership, educators, and the business
community to ensure the next generation is ready for success!

Thank you for supporting JA of Central Virginia and JA students throughout
the region.

young people to succeed in a global economy.

lack soft skills such as critical thinking,
creativity, communication, and

92% of senior executives 
believe Americans aren't as
skilled as they need to be.*

Work readiness is a key area of focus for Junior Achievement’s proven programs.
JA connects volunteer role models from the community with students. Our
volunteers share their career experiences and introduce young people to
professions and industries that they may not have been aware of otherwise.  JA
programs help students understand the world of work, what skills are necessary to
succeed, and how to continue growing professionally.

88% of JA alumni report being satisfied
in their career compared to less than
half of the general population.

1 in 3 JA alumni say that
their experience gave
them an idea of what to
do for a career.

Dear Sharper Palate,
Thank you so much for giving our school the opportunity to visit you. I had a really nice
time having the chance to cook in an actual commercial kitchen. I even learned other things
about the workplace that I hadn't known before. Everyone was wonderful and I really do
hope I get the chance to come again.

Junior Achievement created the world’s first youth entrepreneurship education
program in 1919. Since then, more than 100 million young people have
participated in JA programs, and many of them have gone on to become
successful entrepreneurs. JA connects volunteers from the business community
with young people to inspire them to consider the opportunities associated with
being an entrepreneur.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to
showcase my ideas. I enjoyed the curriculum
learned in class, and the ability to go to VCU
and present my product was amazing.
Learning how to write a business plan and
prepare the numbers needed to make a
successful product was something I had never
done before. During and after the process, I
found I really enjoyed the creative aspect that
goes with developing a product.

Thank you,

Dear Mr. Chris and Mr. Keith (JA volunteers),
Thank you for teaching us about money and
