Junior Achievement (JA) of Alabama, a member of JA USA, is the largest and most comprehensive volunteer-delivered economics education program in the state of Alabama. JA of Alabama partners with corporations, organizations, schools and individuals to make a positive impact on the future of our students and our state.
Our volunteer-led programs teach K-12 students in schools throughout our state about business and entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and workforce readiness. Volunteers share their personal and business experience to bring JA curriculum to life, helping students understand the real-world application of what they are learning in school. This added relevancy makes economic concepts relevant, fuels the entrepreneurial spirit, and prepares young people to succeed in a global economy.
JA of Alabama empowers more than 30,000 students annually to "own their economic success" by fostering work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills. Our experiential learning programs along with more than 2,000 business professionals, parents, retirees and college students inspire students to dream big and to reach their potential.
