Description

Junior Achievement (JA), with the support of community volunteers and dedicated educational leaders, helps to inspire and empower students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world. JA extends education so that kids have a deeper conceptual understanding of what is necessary to contribute to the success of their future, opening their minds to their potential and preparing them for the world of work.

JA programs correlate to state standards in social studies, English, and mathematics, and to Common Core State Standards. All of our programs are session-specific, student-friendly materials are included to increase student interaction.

It's not an easy task but we continue to impact the lives of young people in over 43 communities statewide, reaching out to over 8,497 students across Alaska.
