Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy through educational programs focused on work readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship. JA offers several programs for K-12 grade levels, all at no cost to schools or students. JA relies on community support to continue to provide valuable content to our future generation.
The proceeds for Designer Purse Bingo will be used to support the Junior Achievement programs in the Decatur and Monroe schools. These programs help students reach their full potential and equip them to be the best they can be.
All Decatur and Monroe programs are funded by businesses and individuals donating their time and money to the program.
