Request a Junior Achievement Program

Why have Junior Achievement in the Classroom?

Junior Achievement's unique delivery system provides the training, materials, and support necessary to bolster the chances for student success. At your invitation, we help arrange for business people and local community leaders to visit your classroom a few times or throughout the semester. We call these volunteers "Junior Achievement Mentors." They volunteer to share their workforce experience with your students, all while teaching sound economic principles and reinforcing your class curricula.

Giving Students a Brighter Future

Students who participate in Junior Achievement programs demonstrate a significant understanding of economics and business concepts, particularly those who participate in programs at consecutive grade levels, according to independent evaluators.

This year, Junior Achievement of Idaho has the funds to provide 1,000 in-class programs at no cost to our schools. The cost per classroom is $100 if registration exceeds our current available funds.
