It’s Giving Tuesday—Here’s Your Chance to Help Support the Future Workforce

Today is Giving Tuesday, and for the second consecutive year the ASA Foundation is supporting fundraising efforts for its philanthropic partner, Jobs for America’s Graduates—specifically, to provide scholarships for the JAG National Student Leadership Academy.

Each year, the academy program hosts 800 student delegates from across the nation to participate in three days of professional and personal development activities. The cost to attend ranges from $1,000 to $2,000, quite steep for deserving, but economically disadvantaged, youth. Your donation will help remove this financial burden for a select group of JAG student scholars.

By contributing to the ASA Foundation JAG scholar fund, you will provide a high school student a life-changing experience that will help shape their professional future in the workforce.

Give to the ASA Foundation JAG scholar fund today, and help spread the word on social media using the hashtags #GivingTuesday and #ASACares.
