JA Alumni are a select groups of people who have experienced Junior Achievement programs as a student. You may have run your own student business as a member of the JA Company Program or maybe you experienced what it was like to make financial decision in a student-managed city as part of JA Finance Park Virtual. We bet Junior Achievement made a difference in your life!

Local Alumni Spotlight
Many JA alumni start businesses that serve a social need, solve a local problem, or inspire others to reach their potential. Others donate time and money to their communitites. While some give back to the next generation of young pople by volunteering and mentoring. What all our alumni share is the desire to be a global force for good and to help prepare the youth for the future.
We love to honor the great work our local alumni are doing for the Greater Boston area! This month we honor, James Brett, President and CEO of The New England Council. Learn about Jim's story with JA and what he is doing now to give back.
