The Innovation Academy and the Junior Achievement of Alachua are partnering to create a day of service where UF Innovation Academy students will visit a local elementary school and deliver the JA K-5 programs to help local elementary students reach their full potential – jump-starting their progress towards acquiring the necessary skills for a 21st Century global workforce.

Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future and make smart academic and economic choices. Independent studies show that JA programs work. Students who go through the programs gain a greater understanding of financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. Please visit www.JAAlachua.org for more information on our local JA.

We look forward to making a more detailed announcement in the upcoming months, and plan a full partnership launch in the Spring of 2019.
