Our programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.

JA’s unique approach allows volunteers from the community to deliver our curricula 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.

Third party research has proven that JA programs change students' perceptions of themselves and their worlds in a way that helps them become more successful as adults. This is possible thanks to our generous supporters and 6,000 volunteers who bring JA's results-driven programs to life each year.
