Time & Location
About The Event
Join us in making our 6th Annual Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge as successful as last year! Your support will provide high schoolers' the ability to participate in this unique JA program!
Family game night will never be the same after you've experienced our virtual stock market simulation...
Your sponsorship or participation in this virtual event on the evening of November 04, 2021 will support 900 high school students' participation in Junior Achievement's Stock Market Challenge program, which includes four in-class lessons and uses realistic software to teach high schoolers about investing and the stock market. Many types of sponsorships are available, PLUS you can create your own fundraising page to give more students the opportunity to receive the program.
This is your chance to help our community's teenagers learn important lessons they'll use forever!
Why should you invest in the Stock Market Challenge?
· Your investment in this program increases high school students' financial capabilities; with the help of a local volunteer, they will discover the benefits and challenges of investing in the stock market as part of a broader, long-term investment strategy. Teenagers need financial literacy training now, more than ever.
· 84% of children served by Junior Achievement in Miami currently live at or below the national poverty level; many of these students do not have role models at home who can exemplify economic success factors. JA volunteers give at-risk students the instruction and attention they need, even in today's virtual world.
· An investment by your organization may satisfy certain CRA requirements.
