Inspiring Young People to Succeed
JA (Junior Achievement) is the world’s largest NGO dedicated to educating young people about business. We strive to inspire and prepare youth to succeed in a global economy. With over 120 member organizations worldwide, JA brings a global view of business to local communities. We partner with educators, donors and volunteers to bring a real world experience into the classroom. Our programs focused on financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship give students the skills and confidence they need to become leaders of tomorrow.
Your commitment could vary from a single school day to a weekly visit of one hour each for five to 10 weeks. It all depends on the grade level of the program you choose. You can choose your classroom based on a number of factors. We're flexible!
Our programs are meant to supplement the lessons that students currently learn within the class curriculum. We offer engaging and diverse hands-on programming about the basics of business, financial literacy and work readiness.
JA donors and sponsors really do make a difference! Their generosity enabled nearly 38,000 students the opportunity to participate in work readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship programs this past school year!
