Junior Achievement Sparks Student Success

JA impacted over 4.8 million U.S. students in more than 211,000 classrooms during 2017-2018.

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 more than 245,329 volunteers, JA students develop the skills they need to experience the realities and opportunities of work and entrepreneurship in the 21st-century global marketplace.
