What is Junior Achievement?

Junior Achievement is the world's largest organization dedicated to preparing youth in the areas of work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy.  Founded locally in 1968, we are ready to celebrate our 50th anniversary of providing programs that teach kids the importance of staying in school, and planning for their futures.  

We rely on contributions from businesses, individuals and foundations to provide our programs to over 12,000 students annually.  We can't change the lives of northeastern Pennsylvania children without your help!  Click on the picture below to learn why we do what we do!
