The goal is to raise $4,000 to send a qualified student to the Junior Achievement Academy at Oakridge High School in Orlando, Florida. 

Avant Healthcare Professionals’ ongoing partnership with JA involves sponsoring the JA Academy Scholarship for a local student, mentoring students and providing JA with additional classroom resources needed to continue their initiative.
