JA prepares students for future success through hands-on financial literacy, career readiness, and entrepreneurship programs.
For more than 100 years, Junior Achievement programs have helped 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 volunteer role models from businesses and the community to deliver our curricula while sharing their stories with students. Embodying the heart of JA, volunteer role models transform lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world.
Most JA programs are available for either in-person or virtual delivery this school year. Please select an option on this page to view a menu of JA programs and to request JA in your classroom or school.
