Mission Statement

Founded nationally in 1919 and locally in 1954, Junior Achievement's (JA) mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Junior Achievement uses hands-on experiences to help youth understand the economics of life. In partnership with business and educators, Junior Achievement brings the real world to students, opening their minds to their potential. JA programs deal with real issues like career exploration & workforce readiness, financial literacy, and business & entrepreneurship so young people not only understand their opportunities in life but can also take advantage of those opportunities.

Description

With a range of different programs, Junior Achievement teaches about concepts from microeconomics and macroeconomics to free enterprise to students in grades K-12. The volunteers bring real-life business experience and guidance into the classroom. JA is fundamentally a volunteer organization where dedicated individuals give their time in the classroom to educate young people about what it takes to succeed in the real world. JA volunteers offer experience‑based learning by giving students the opportunity to interact with them.

The concepts taught in JA programs enhance the curriculum taught in schools. Concepts relating to financial literacy, entrepreneurial skills and workforce readiness are often not taught in the home or in schools, increasing the need for these themes to be brought to the students. JA's materials, which include workbooks, study guides, lesson plans and interactive activities are the best available and have been adapted for today's digital environment. They are provided at no cost to the students. Each of the JA programs are revised regularly to ensure timeliness, relevance, and accuracy of content.
