Junior Achievement of Central Florida's (JACF) vision is ""All graduating students in Central Florida are financially literate; grounded in free enterprise, leadership and entrepreneurial principles and ready for the workforce. They are inspired and prepared to lead and succeed in a global economy."" JACF connects the business community, educators, and volunteers ó all working together to inspire young people to dream big and reach their potential. For fifty-one years, JACF has focused on helping young people understand the world of business and learn how to be successful in life. At Junior Achievement, we give young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. Our corporate and community volunteers deliver relevant, hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. JA programs empower students to make a connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world - enhancing the relevance of their classroom learning and increasing their understanding of the value of staying in school.
