Empowering Young People to Own Their Economic Success

Junior Achievement is building stronger communities by educating local students on Financial Literacy, Workforce Readiness, and Entrepreneurship. Junior Achievement of North Central Ohio is educating students in communities throughout Ashland, Coshocton, Crawford, Holmes, Knox, Marion, Medina, Morrow, Portage, Summit, Richland and Wayne Counties.

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 840 volunteers, JA students develop the skills they need to experience the realities and opportunities of work and entrepreneurship in the 21st-century global marketplace.


The 2015-16 school year was a success!
