Mission Statement

JA of Chicago's volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students in our community to dream big and reach their potential.

Description

Junior Achievement empowers students to succeed in the future by providing free educational programs from Kindergarten through 12th Grade. JA's innovative and experiential programs are based on work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy and align directly with educational curriculum standards. JA brings volunteers from the business and community into the classroom to bring these relevant and fun economics of life lessons to the students. It is that link to the "real world" in the classroom that brings volunteers, students and educators together for success! In DuPage County this year, we are on target to empower over 4,000 classes and more than 85,000 students. We've been able to continually expand our program every year thanks largely in part to our loyal JA partners and volunteers.
