Junior Achievement of Memphis and the Mid-South has been dedicated to educating students about entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy since 1955. Through an extensive offering of experiential, hands-on programs JA empowers students by helping them discover the tools they need to own their economic success.

More than 10,000 students participate in JA programs each year throughout the Greater Memphis area. Our programs are taught by volunteers from all walks of life, including: business people, college students, parents and retirees. These dedicated individuals are the backbone of our organization.


Why JA?

JA helps students realize that the education they are getting today will help them to have a bright future tomorrow.  JA's unique, volunteer-driven programs show them all of the possibilities that lay before them.
