During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
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.
