Mission Statement

The purpose of Junior Achievement is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. This is achieved by developing the desire in young people to stay in school and appreciate lifelong learning, by fostering positive attitudes toward work, and by creating a partnership that bridges the classroom and workplace.


Junior Achievement is a nationwide non-profit organization which sends business volunteers into kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms to help students understand how business works. Volunteer role models present materials and lessons that are fun and informative for students, while user-friendly for the volunteers themselves.

I volunteer in the classroom teaching My Families program to 1st graders. The lesson plans are provided by JA. The lessons are fun and interactive and the kids really enjoy it. It's also rewarding as a volunteer. I have also participated in the annual JA Bowl a thon for the past 8 years. This is JA's main fundraiser. It's fun for everyone and helps JA continue to provide their programs in schools. We would love to have you on the JA Team.

I wanted to support this effort with the Surry County School System and Dominion and they supported this effort and the first one went so well that we are planning more on site visits! Great staff!!!

I have volunteered the past two years with the "Our Families" lesson in a first grade class. It is a rewarding experience to go into the classroom and share the enthusiam for learning. I had no prior experience in a classroom environment but the lesson plans provided by JA make it easy. Anyone can do it!

I volunteered for several of their events. There were multiple locations and timeslots available to fit my busy schedule. I think they are an excellent non-profit with a very worthy cause.
