About Our Office
Junior Achievement of Western Pennsylvania (JA) gives young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future and make smart academic and economic choices. Our corporate and community volunteers deliver relevant, hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship.
