The Stoughton Area Resource Team, Inc. (START) provides a safety net for those in crisis. Recently, a 30-year old single father of two struggled to find work, to pay for daycare for his children and to secure a home; so much time was spent homeless and hopeless.

Preparing Stoughton Students for the Future - 2016 Amount Funded:
The purpose of the Preparing Stoughton Students for the Future is just that. Giving our students the tools and knowledge they need to succeed will help them become productive employers, successful business owners, effective managers of their personal finances,and good citizens of our community.
Junior Achievement is providing classroom programs at Kegonsa Elementary school to help 4th and 5th graders prepare for their futures. Sixty-four 4th grade students will receive JA Our Region, a classroom program that includes lessons about entrepreneurship. Students operate a hypothetical hot dog stand and learn the basic tasks performed by a business owner. They also learn how entrepreneurs use regional resources to produce goods and services in a community. Eighty-two 5th graders will receive JA Our Nation. They will learn about the need for entrepreneurial thinking to meet the requirements of high-growth, high demand jobs of the future. By the end of the program, students will understand the skills (particularly in science, technology, engineering, and math) that will make their futures brighter.
