About

Junior Achievement of Northern California is inspiring a generation to be financially capable and prepared for career success. With the help of volunteer role models, education and business partners, JA equips these young people with the tools to solve problems creatively, manage risk effectively, and welcome opportunity. Together we are building a bridge from the classroom to the boardroom.

The JA Company Program Blended Model unlocks the innate ability in students to solve a problem or fill a need in their community through an entrepreneurial spirit.
Junior Achievement and community volunteers will mentor high school students as they create and lead their student run enterprise.
