Junior Achievement in Central Missouri supports our Columbia Missouri area schools and educators by providing valuable kindergarten through high school classroom resources that are well-tested, hands-on programs taught by caring community members and business volunteers.

JA's programs focus on basic concepts of economics and show how education is relevant to the workplace. The sequential activities foster lifelong learning and help students make informed, intelligent decisions about their future. With a range of different programs, Junior Achievement teaches about concepts relating to entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and work readiness. JA's programs are correlated to Missouri Show-Me Standards and Grade Level Expectations. Programs Advisory Board Special Events Support JA in Central Missouri.

Through the GE Foundation & JA Worldwide 2015-2016 Global Education Initiative GE volunteers taught the JA Our Community program to second-grade students at South Park Elementary in Spring 2016. Their support included a $2,000 grant to fund these classrooms. For more information, please contact:
