Our purpose is,
To inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. It's not an easy task, but it's the kind of challenge JA takes on with creative energy, fervor, and decisive action.
To this end,
Our corporate and community volunteers deliver relevant, hands-on experiences, giving students from kindergarten through high school an education in financial literacy, work-readiness, and entrepreneurship. At Junior Achievement, we give young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future and make smart academic and economic choices. Junior Achievement USA reaches nearly 4.9 million students per year in 212,101 classrooms and after-school locations.
