With the power to end poverty, build financial and career resilience, and prepare for the jobs of the future, the 17 United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development (also known as SDGs) aim to make a better world by 2030. Guided by these goals, governments, businesses, NGOs, and the general public are working together to build a better future for today’s youth. Local and global nonprofits, community organizations, and schools have a unique opportunity to align their collective work to the Global Goals. What follows is an example of how JA Worldwide is aligning our programs and partnerships to eight of the seventeen Global Goals.
