Junior Achievement's unique delivery system provides the training, materials, and support necessary to bolster the chances for student success. The impact is measurable, too. Students who participate in Junior Achievement programs demonstrate a significant understanding of economics and business concepts. We invite you to take a closer look at our programs!
JA is the bridge between school & life. Children have boundless potential - but too many are never encouraged to strive for success. With the help of volunteers from local companies, students are introduced to the options available to them & shown how vital education is to their future.
JA is a solution to poverty. We believe that if young scholars are taught to manage their money early - those students will soar through life's financial challenges. At JA Finance Park, high school students create & manage a monthly budget based on a simulated persona.
JA prepares students for real life. Nothing leaves a lasting impression quite like experiential learning. At JA BizTown, fifth and sixth grade students spend a day in the shoes of CEOs, CFOs, employees, elected officials, & consumers. The experience of being an adult for a day inspires them to dream bigger!
This program teaches middle and high school students the practical skills required to plan, launch, and operate their own business venture within a structured, guided experience. All profits generated benefit the school or designated community organization.
We are pivoting our program offerings to adapt to COVID-19's impact and are now offering FREE virtual experiences and events including: JA Career Speakers Series, JA Launch Lesson, JA Job Shadow and JA Career Expo and more! Don't forget we also now have a virtual JA BizTown Adventures and Virtual JA Finance Park.
