2008 Leadership Awards Gala: Masterof CeremoniesMaurice DuBoiscongratulates“Student Leader of the Year” honoree, Xiang Siow.
 
Dear friends,
 Without a doubt, JA New York’s ability to attract the support of a dynamiccommunity of people who care abouteducation and the future of our youngpeople has been crucial to thesustainability of the organization. This year’s annual report theme— 
”Success is More Than Luck” 
 —invites you to read andshare the inspirational stories of students, volunteers, alumni and partners.In our 80th year of delivering economic education programs toNYC and Long Island students, the need for such education hasnever been more visible or critical. This is a time to reflect on thestrength and reach of a mission that has championed financialresponsibility. For eight decades, JA New York has been a primary economic education resource to prepare young people to beresponsible and successful citizens.Our success has required more than luck to survive a challenging year. The recent national and local economic downturn hasreshaped the giving/volunteering landscape that sustained us inthe past. Like most non-profits, we found ourselves struggling tofulfill our mission while expanding and maintaining stability. Nowmore than ever, our young people—especially in underservedcommunities—are in danger of losing access to pathways of success, opportunity and hope.It’s clear the time is right for new ideas, approaches and solutionsto drive the organization forward to a more stable and successfulfuture. We’ve already taken steps to reposition and strengthen theorganization. By restructuring and controlling expenses, we’relaying the groundwork to become a better, stronger, moreefficient operation. We still have a tough road ahead of us, but opportunity still exists.The challenge is to prepare for it, recognize it and to leverage it.The good news is our people are smart; our mission is achievable;and we have a passionate and dedicated community of supporters. We trust in our collective talent to creatively solve problems and we have the courage to remain optimistic and innovative. JA still has the potential to be the primary economic educationalresource, not just in New York City, but in the world. At a locallevel, we need to adapt to the environment and refocus our effortson delivering high-impact programs with fewer resources. As acommunity, we can do it. We’re determined and most of all, we’remotivated. We believe in our resourcefulness to live up to thepromise of the JA mission—to inspire and prepare young peopleto succeed in a global economy. We can’t guarantee that any of this will be easy, but we will make sure that whatever we ask you todo will be achievable and we will ensure that the JA New Yorkmission continues to be rewarding and inspiring.Thank you for your dedication, your generosity, your imagination, your optimism and for standing by us for eight decades of servicein support of our young people. The students we serve are gratefulfor your volunteer and fundraising efforts. Without you, there would be less opportunity and resources to prepare them tonavigate through a rapidly changing world. We hope you enjoy reading this year’s annual report and that you will find inspirationin testimonials from members of the JA community. Together, ourcollective success will always be more than luck because we arecommitted to touching lives, changing attitudes, inspiring hopeand igniting potential.Most sincerely,Douglas E. Schallau,
