Meet the JA Leaders
JA could never accomplish all that it does without the help of community leaders and our organizational leadership.
JA’s influential board of directors is comprised of senior executives and business leaders who represent diverse facets of our local economy. In the quest to position JA as a vital educational force for children, they are willing and able to deliver their own organization’s resources (human and/or financial) and influence others to do the same.
The Northern Colorado/Wyoming Advisory Board of Directors includes leaders from Larimer and Weld Counties in Colorado and Laramie County in Wyoming, whose passion for Junior Achievement’s mission is vital to meeting both the financial and volunteer demands necessary to support the growing number of requests for JA programs across a seven-county area. This dedicated group of individuals is the driving force behind the success of Junior Achievement programs in Northern Colorado and Wyoming.
