To inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.
In partnership with business and educators, Junior Achievement brings the real world to students, opening their minds to their potential and preparing them for the world of work.
JA's unique approach allows volunteers from the community to deliver our curriculum while sharing their experiences with students. Embodying the heart of JA, our classroom volunteers transform the key concepts of our lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world.
I taught 1st Graders at College Station Elementary and loved it! They were so excited to learn about jobs and families. And the curriculum is so easy to follow but to also make it your own. Thanks JA for this opportunity!
