Junior Achievement Sparks Student Success
Our volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential. With the help of 12,598 volunteers in the 2015-2016 school year, 306,445 area students developed the skills they need to experience the realities and opportunities of work and entrepreneurship in the 21st century global marketplace.
JA Inspire provides students with insight into a potential future
Thank you to the sponsors, volunteers, Career Station companies, Industry Presenters, and educators who came together to make the 2015-2016 JA Inspire program an unforgettable experience that will help our area 8th graders set a course for their future! Approximately 19,000 middle grades students were able to learn about local companies and careers, as well as the educational steps needed to attain jobs that interest them, through direct interaction with greater Houston area employers and employees.
