Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore (JA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing possibility and powering potential for students, grades K-12, on The Shore. As the liaisons between business and education, we immerse ourselves in local business industries, identify the needs of the marketplace, and develop an innovative, needs-based curriculum that is brought to life by volunteers in our community. We teach concepts that equip and inspire our students to:
- Live within their means
- Build wealth
- Identify fulfilling career pathways
- Prepare for the "new normal" of work
- Explore entrepreneurial thinking that stimulates our local economy and employs our neighbors
