Junior Achievement of Alachua County is a volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade focused organization that fosters work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and uses experiential learning to inspire students in our community to dream big and reach their potential. Recently Junior Achievement announced they will launch a $500,000 fundraising campaign in Alachua County to bring a JA BizTown Mobile experience to Alachua County 5th graders.
Our own Kirk Klein, who is a JA regional board member, is helping to bring BizTown Mobile to Alachua County. In addition, Koss Olinger will be opening up a “storefront” in the JA town and helping to teach children about financial literacy, entrepreneurship and being a good steward of money.
