Make an exciting difference in the future of kindergarten to 12th grade students across Forsyth County!
You can inspire young people to experience the realities and opportunities of the new global marketplace through Junior Achievement (JA).
JA is the nonprofit leader in providing innovative, hands-on experiences that focus on financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship education. We rely on volunteers to take career and life-skills mentoring into local classrooms during the school day. Volunteer experiences range in day and time commitment. Don’t have teaching experience? That’s okay! Volunteers bring their enthusiasm and life experiences while Junior Achievement provides the training, materials and classroom! We offer turn-key opportunities for all.
Junior Achievement of the Triad reached more than 16,000 Triad students last year. Join us and help reach our goal of impacting over 20,000 students this year!

About Junior Achievement of the Triad
3220 Northline Ave., Greensboro, NC 27408, US
Our mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Our primary purpose is utilizing volunteers' experiences with the business world to enhance students' understanding of business, citizenship, economics, entrepreneurship, ethics and character, financial literacy, and career development. We do our work through strong partnerships with schools and a dedicated volunteer network.
The national Junior Achievement organization was founded in 1919. Our office opened in 1965 with the help of nearly three dozen local business leaders who saw the need for entrepreneurs and schools to partner to better prepare students to be active citizens and workforce members. Since then, our organization has grown from offering an after-school program in Guilford County to offering hundreds of classroom-based financial literacy and economics education programs in five counties: Alamance, Forsyth, Guilford, Randolph, and Rockingham.
