About JA of Kansas

Junior Achievement of Kansas will work with more than 28,000 children this school year helping them prepare for the real world of the future and helping them learn the skills they need for success.

Junior Achievement prepares students for the economics of life. Our programs educate young people to value free enterprise, business and economics through the support of teachers, parents, and volunteers in the classroom. JA uses hands-on experiences to help young people understand how the real-world works.

In partnership with business and educators, Junior Achievement brings the real-world to students, opening their minds to their potential and showing them that they can make a difference in the world.

JA Programs complement and support the great work that teachers accomplish by helping educate students in personal finance and practical workplace skills, preparing them to pursue their careers as well as their dreams.

Junior Achievement is the world's largest organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy. Through a dedicated volunteer network, Junior Achievement provides in-school and after-school programs for students which focus on three key content areas: work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy.

Today, 124 individual area operations reach four million students in the United States, with an additional six million students served by operations in 120 other countries worldwide. For more information, visit www.ja.org.
