JA's mission is to inspire and prepare
young people for success!
Who We Serve:
We serve students. Junior Achievement students practice the principles of financial management, along with developing the 21st century skills necessary to succeed in a global workforce. In addition to learning how to make and manage money, and how to become work and career ready, students are empowered to explore their potential to become successful entrepreneurs – even while they are in school.
We serve teachers. Educators invite Junior Achievement volunteers into their classrooms because JA volunteers and program materials offer educators an exciting learning environment that gives students a real-world perspective. JA programs content supports and enhances state education standards, the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) to help students achieve educators' learning objectives.
We serve schools. Thanks to volunteer and financial support from the local community, JA programs are offered at no cost to students or schools.
We serve our community. Junior Achievement inspires and prepares students for success in work and life, providing a strong workforce to continue the economic growth of the Fort Worth community. JA programs provide companies with great employee engagement activities that allow critical business success.
