EVERY CHILD CAN SUCCEED IN THE BUSINESS OF LIFE WITH THE RIGHT TOOLS.

But not all kids today are receiving the tools they need for tomorrow.

Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain, Inc. (JA) is part of the world’s largest nonprofit dedicated to motivating kids for future career success, self-sufficiency, and financial acumen. We accomplish this through a huge network of stellar volunteers who share their stories with young people and deliver lessons in career readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship.

“JA really opened my eyes to the possibilities of different avenues.
It wasn’t just going to have to be working as a server in a restaurant.
JA turned me onto the idea that there’s more out there.”
-Elijah Janello, JA alumnus

Transamerica

Transamerica is committed to providing middle and high school students with a real-world perspective of personal finance – one that is current, practical and easy to understand. In support of that commitment, Transamerica is the presenting sponsor of JA’s experiential program, JA Finance Park, a Harvard-recognized financial literacy program that helps middle and high school students build financial skills for life. “Supporting JA Finance Park provides Transamerica the opportunity to help instill sound, practical financial guidance at a time when these kids are just starting to learn what it takes to create a budget and develop good spending and saving habits,” said Brian Florey, business development manager for Transamerica, and JA board member.  “What they’re learning today is designed to give them a strong foundation from which to make wise decisions that lead to a bright and prosperous future.”
