In partnership with business and community volunteers, JA brings the real world to the classroom - opening students' minds to their potential and preparing them for the workforce.
JA programs help to build the bridge between school learning and young people's future success in the work world and in their lives by delivering relevant, hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. Junior Achievement offers powerful, age, grade specific programs that support and enable youth in a number of ways, including in their quest toward high school graduation.
Our classroom volunteers teach JA curriculum in the classroom. There is a minimal time commitment.
