JA of South Florida is near and dear to the attorneys and staff members at Morris Law Group. The partners and staff at the firm volunteer throughout the year at both JA Finance Park at the Broward Community College campus and at the annual JA Bowl-a-Thon to help raise funds for the very worthwhile organization that teaches students about the concepts of personal financial management.
JA provides real-world training and education to local eighth graders on financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness. It’s their mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. JA of South Florida has more than 7,000 dedicated volunteers who enrich the lives of thousands of students in Broward and south Palm Beach counties each year.
The attorneys and staff members recently spent the day volunteering at JA’s Finance Park, assisting and mentoring local eighth graders from Silver Lakes Middle School as they learned some real-world lessons on managing their income, expenses, savings and credit.
About JA Finance Park
At the Patten Family Foundation JA Finance Park, more than 20,000 eighth grade students from Broward and south Palm Beach counties each year learn how financial decisions will impact their lives. These include expenses related to family health care, real estate and home improvements, automobiles, insurance, entertainment, education, and purchasing items, such as clothing, furniture and groceries. Prior to visiting JA Finance Park, students engage in a comprehensive classroom curriculum that teaches them about finances, careers, income, expenses, savings and credit. This program helps students recognize that their education decisions affect their career options and have an impact on their potential income and quality of life. At the end of the classroom instruction, students visit JA Finance Park and put what they learned into action by managing a real-world-inspired personal budget based on local careers in a simulated city. Students are guided by trained volunteers.
