About Junior Achievement of Chicago
Junior Achievement is the world's largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. JA programs are delivered by corporate and community volunteers, and provide relevant, hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. This year, JA of Chicago celebrated its 75th Anniversary by reaching over 538,000 students in 12 counties through Take Your Work to Kids Day ™. Visit www.jachicago.org for more information.
