JA Alumni are a select group of leaders who have experienced Junior Achievement programs as a student. You may have run your own student business as a member of the JA Company Program®, experienced what it was like to make financial decisions in a student-managed city as part of JA Finance Park®, or learned about money, careers or running a business in any one of JA's other K-12 programs.
Research Shows Impact of JA on Alumni
In the spring of 2016, Junior Achievement USA (JA) conducted a survey of more than 700 JA alumni to gain a better understanding of the impact of JA programs. The participating alumni were drawn from a representational sample of the U.S. population. Some of the findings:
Educational Attainment: Not only are JA Alumni more inclined to finish high school than the general population, they are also 30 percent more likely to have a four-year degree and 67 percent more likely to have an advanced degree.
Income: JA Alumni have a median household income that is 20 percent higher than the U.S. median household income.
Entrepreneurial Activity: JA Alumni are 143 percent more likely to have started a business compared to the general public.
Career Success: In all, 88 percent of JA Alumni say they are satisfied with their careers, compared to about 49 percent of the general public. They are also more inclined to work in management positions than the general population.
