Since 1967, our programs have brought relevance to financial education by providing the tools kids need to make a difference in their futures. Junior Achievement of Mid-Michigan students have learned to understand and respect the free enterprise system through their JA participation. Most importantly, they have developed the skills and knowledge to be successful in their chosen careers. We currently service the tri-county area of Ingham, Clinton and Eaton counties which contains over 83,000 students.
Regardless of economic background, many students lack the knowledge they need in order to achieve success in their future careers and in life. They simply may not understand how learning in school connects to their future success.
Our programs encourage volunteers to serve as role models as they use their skills and life experiences as professionals to teach young people career and life skills. Volunteers are placed into classrooms to teach students about their role in society and how to successfully navigate their futures, beginning with the most basic understanding of themselves and their communities.
In addition, JAMM sponsors a complete spectrum of educational experiences outside the classroom, like job shadowing, after-school programs, interactive games, and a variety of annual events.
