What We Do

Economic Empowerment Through Education! Junior Achievement (JA) empowers young people to own their economic success. Our volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential. JA students develop the skills they need to succeed at managing money, career readiness, and entrepreneurship.  Through an innovative partnership between the business community, educators and volunteers, Junior Achievement helps young people connect with relevant learning and the importance of staying in school. JA inspires students to develop competitive skills and confidence plus, their success bolsters the local workforce and contributes to economic growth.
