What if we told you 40% of today's graduates aren't equipped with the 21st century skills to succeed in the workplace? What if we told you that 50% of high school dropouts say they left school because they didn't think what they were learning in the classroom was relevant to their lives and futures? What if we told you there are more than 93,000 young people in our region who are out of school and out of work, disconnected from future opportunities? Now, what if we told you that JLL could change that?
During the month of June, JLL will partner with JA® to raise dollars to support our experiential, relevant, and authentic programs delivered by role models like you and designed to inspire.
Because we believe that together, we can inspire the next generation to be financially capable, tenacious, and equipped to manage risk effectively, solve problems creatively, and welcome opportunity. In short, JLL and JA can partner to empower the next generation to answer the demands of the 21st century economy with "I can."
Following your donation to JA, please be sure to complete the steps for JLL's charitable giving matching program.
