About

Help Junior Achievement introduce students to the essential elements of managing a budget, preparing for working in a career they love, and creating their own entrepreneurial venture while still in school. Be a mentor for tomorrow's workforce, entrepreneurs, and start-ups and empower the future!

The program is composed of five-seven sessions, each 45 minutes in length. The program is recommended for students in grades kindergarten through 12. Junior Achievement provides all of the programming through our online blended model and materials that are packaged in a self-contained kit that includes detailed session plans for the volunteer and materials for 32 students.

JA's 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.
