Volunteering is Good for the Soul ~ The Stylista
Today I am giving up a few hours of my day to support a worthy cause and maybe have some fun.
Its Bowl-a-Thon day and I super excited to be participating for the second year now.
A little about my charity
Junior Achievement’s (JA) mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. But what we are really doing is helping students make the connection between what they learn in school and what they will need to know for the future. We want every student to be equipped with the right tools to take advantage of the abundant opportunities in this country and worldwide.
JA is a unique organization because we believe that every student has the potential to succeed in life – regardless of his or her background or economic status. JA increases their awareness of all the options life has to offer and helps them realize just how much they can do. We inspire them to set and attain goals that are personally important to them. You can’t dream big if your world is small.
Since 1961, Junior Achievement of Central Florida has inspired well over a million Central Florida students. Our goal this year is to reach 80,000 students with valuable JA classroom programs. These accomplishments would not be possible without the involvement of our dedicated board members, classroom volunteers, and generous supporters. The investment we make in the children of today will pay dividends in the future as they mature into productive community members and leaders.
There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer out there
