At Junior Achievement, we give young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. Our volunteer-delivered, relevant, hands-on experiences give students knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. JA programs make a connection between what students learn in school and demonstrate how these lessons can be applied in their lives. JA enhances the relevance of their classroom learning and increases their understanding of the value of staying in school.
Junior Achievement’s mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.
