Junior Achievement is passionate people inspiring kids to learn the economics of life through free enterprise education. JA enables caring adults to share their experience with students to show them what it takes to be successful. After all, kids are our future!!!!
JA’s business and economics programs are for students in kindergarten through grade 12. The dynamic interaction between the volunteer and the students promotes active learning and brings theory to life.
JA’s unique approach integrates program materials, trainings, and support. JA is the successful bridge between education and business.

Mentors — Volunteers serve as role models to help young people better understand economic concepts in order to become successful in the workplace and in life.
Investors — Business, foundations, and individuals support JA because it teaches students about economic and business and because JA’s positive impact is measurable.
Educators — Teachers welcome Junior Achievement’s resources because they enhance the learning environment and reinforce the classroom curriculum.
