Junior Achievement Sparks Student Success
JA impacted over 4.5 million U.S. students in more than 197,000 classrooms during 2013-2014.
Our volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential. With the help of more than 213,000 volunteers, JA students develop the skills they need to experience the realities and opportunities of work and entrepreneurship in the 21st-century global marketplace.
Locally, Junior Achievement of Mahoning Valley reached 10,486 students in 466 classrooms during the 2013-2014 school year. Over 450 individuals volunteered their time in the classroom. These passionate volunteers, investors, educators, and local leaders are individuals who care enough to make a difference in a child's life through the enrichment with the JA experience. For many children, experiencing JA is seeing an activity and visualizing a future where their dreams can become reality.
We would like to thank all of our donors, volunteers, educators, board of directors and special event participants for helping to make our program year a success! We are grateful for the volunteers who devoted time and resources out of their busy work schedules to make a connection from the business world to the classroom. We appreciate their commitment to the Mahoning Valley. And of course, a very special thank you to all of our donors who made a financial contribution to JA!
