Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.

Would you recommend Junior Achievement of the Triad?

by Allie R. from Asheboro, NC (2013-05-24 10:32:08.0)
Personally, I believe the impact made on children this young is the most important. I remember people and experiences from this age and still very much value all the great people in the community that I interacted with. I work a full-time job, so this volunteer opportunity didn't quite work out for me. ):
