Our Mission

Since 1945, Junior Achievement of Southeast Texas' purpose has been to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.

Junior Achievement of Southeast Texas is part of a global organization that operates in 123 countries and reaches 9.7 million students. It is the world's largest and fastest-growing non-profit economic education organization. Our programs are taught by classroom volunteers from the business community in your area, across America and in countries worldwide.

Junior Achievement is a volunteer driven non-profit organization. This year, approximately 13,000 business professionals, parents, retirees and college students will enter our schools to teach Junior Achievement programs. These volunteers use their personal experiences to make the Junior Achievement curriculum relevant and applicable to today's workplace. Providing children with positive adult role models, who help students develop practical life skills and a positive attitude needed to successfully vie in our free enterprise system, is a hallmark of Junior Achievement.

With a goal of teaching 315,000 students in the 2016-2017 school year, we need your help!
