JA In School Programs include sequential themes for students in grades K – 12. Volunteers are trained by JA staff before they make weekly visits to local classrooms to share their professional knowledge and lead hands-on activities. Students learn the basic concepts of business and economics and how education is relevant to the workplace.
Why Junior Achievement in the Classroom?
Junior Achievement's unique delivery system provides the training, materials, and support necessary to bolster the chances for student success. Business people and local community leaders visit your classroom to share their workforce experience with your students, all while teaching sound economic principals and reinforcing your class curricula.
Giving Students a Brighter Future
Students who participate in Junior Achievement programs demonstrate a significant understanding of economics and business concepts, particularly those who participate in programs at consecutive grade levels, according to independent evaluators.
