More than 1,300 young people in Fulton County schools are building economic knowledge and personal financial literacy through JA programs during this academic year. The learning is possible because of our community's educators who invite JA programs into their classrooms and community volunteers who mentor them.  Each year the board of directors continue to raise additional funds to provide additional programs to reach even more area youth to be financially independent and successful!

EVENTS

Bowl-A-Thon: February 

bowling

You don't have to be a great bowler to be successful.  All you need is enthusiasm!  Each year Junior Achievement supporters get together at local bowling alleys to raise funds for JA and have a great time doing it!

It's easy to participate.  Just gather a team of 5 people, co-workers, friends, or family. Designate a team captain and return your registration form and entry fee.  Encourage each bowler to raise pledges to support the JA porgrams within Fulton County schools.  Arrive at the bowling center to bowl to games while having fun making a strike towards education!

Sponsorships available! To register YOUR team for this year's event, become a t-shirt sponsor, or to sponsor a lane during the event please contact Julie Dyson, Area Coordinator, at (574) 721-7212 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
