At Abshire Public Relations, one of the community organizations we take a lot of pride in supporting is Junior Achievement of Georgia (JA). Just this past academic year alone, JA served more than 14,000 students in our area.

JA is taking a generation of students and helping equip them for our evolving economy. From the quotes of these area students, JA is truly making an impact:

“JA opened my eyes to what adulthood is really about. Money takes time to build up and save, but can be lost so easily.”

“My perception of money has changed because when you get your paycheck, it doesn’t last as long as I thought. I am going to use the knowledge I gained by creating a budget – so to buy my needs before my wants. Knowing how to budget is a very powerful skill and because you will be able to know what to buy, and will be able to save money better.”

“Since knowledge is power, I will use this power in the future to stay out of debt and budget my money properly so I can afford all my needs and possibly a few wants.”

Building a better future for a whole generation of students is something JA should be proud of, and we hope others in our community will join us in support of their important work with today’s youth. You can get involved by contacting them at www.georgia.ja.org.
