    Like many nonprofits, the culture of Junior Achievement is a decidedly mission-driven one. From the board of directors to staff members, the JA community is filled with dedicated professionals committed to delivering its programs of hope and opportunity to students.

    Through the key content areas of entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and work readiness, JA inspires students to succeed in a global economy. Our success stems from great people who are team players and share a common enthusiasm for the great mission of this organization.

    We encourage you to apply for a position and join a winning team of people, who educate and inspire students, helping prepare them for the real world.

    There are two current job openings in our Fort Collins office.

    To apply, please submit your resume and cover letter, including salary requirements (required) to JNyenhuis@JAColorado.org. Indicate the position you are applying for in the subject line.  Both open positions work out of the JA office in Fort Collins and report to the District Director.
