About Our Office

Since 1961, Junior Achievement of Central Florida has inspired well over a million Central Florida students. Our goal this year is to reach a greater number of students in our community with valuable classroom programs. These accomplishments would not be possible without the involvement of our dedicated board members, classroom volunteers, and generous supporters. The investment we make in the children of today will pay dividends in the future as they mature into productive community members and leaders.

Junior Achievement's (JA) mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. But what we are really doing is helping students make the connection between what they learn in school and what they will need to know for the future. We want every student to be equipped with the right tools to take advantage of the abundant opportunities in this country and worldwide.

JA is a unique organization because we believe that every student has the potential to succeed in life – regardless of his or her background or economic status. JA increases their awareness of all the options life has to offer and helps them realize just how much they can do. We inspire them to set and attain goals that are personally important to them. You can't dream big if your world is small.
