JA impacted over 4.6 million U.S. students in more than 200,000 classrooms during 2014-2015.
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 218,000 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 8,855 students in 421 classrooms during the 2014-2015 school year. Over 465 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!
