ARE YOU READY FOR THE REAL WORLD?

Today’s headlines are full of gloom and doom. Young Americans are being crushed by debt, lack of savings and emergency reserves.  For the first time in American history, millennials are the first generation to be worse off financially than their parents.   Young Americans need to learn to manage their finances before another generation becomes shackled by debt with no hope of upward mobility.   Are your kids ready?  JA can help answer that question this summer!

ARE YOU READY FOR SUMMER?

This summer, JA is going to help get your child ready for the real world in just one week at JA Fiscally Fit Camp! Throughout the week, campers will build friendships, discover their potential, explore career opportunities and identify what it will take to succeed in their futures!

ARE YOU READY TO ENGAGE?
