Help Support the Future Workforce by Supporting the ASA Foundation

This year, the ASA Foundation is again 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. By contributing to the ASA Foundation JAG scholar fund, you can help a high school student take part in this life-changing experience that will help shape their professional future in the workforce.

Give to the ASA Foundation JAG scholar fund before the year ends—and help spread the word on social media using the hashtag #ASACares. to Acquire OneWire
