Junior Achievement of North Florida Hosts 11th Annual $mart Women Make Change

October 10th, 2019 · Leave a Comment

Junior Achievement of North Florida will be celebrating women and girls at the $mart Women Make Change event on Nov. 4, from 5:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Jacksonville Public Library.

This is the 11th year for this signature event which benefits the JA Girl$ program, but this year it has a new look and feel. Instead of the typical luncheon and program of year’s past, this will be a more casual evening reception focusing on females in business.

The event will include 10 vendors, all local female-owned businesses, including two middle school girls turned entrepreneurs who will be showcasing their products which will be available for purchase. Art students, grades 9 to 12, from the Foundation Academy are creating up to 10 portraits of influential women which will be on display. There will also be tables with activities, live music and more.

During the event, JA of North Florida will present the Legacy Award to a woman who has contributed greatly to the success of the JA Girl$ initiative. JA Girl$ is dedicated to teaching financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship within an all-girl setting. Since 2006, JA Girl$ has educated more than 19,0000 girls and young women.

Voya Financial and Fidelity Investments are Journey sponsors of the event. Sponsorships and individual tickets are available at janfl.org.
