Bring Junior Achievement To Your Classroom!

Bring Junior Achievement to your Classroom

Junior Achievement of OKI Partners identifies quality volunteers from the community to team with your teachers as they deliver proven, hands-on programming on financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship that inspires students to understand the opportunities provided by education.

  • Importance of Staying in School

    JA reinforces the value of an education. Evaluations conducted by an independent research firm showed that an average of eight out of 10 high school students reported that JA programs helped reinforce the importance of staying in school. In longitudinal studies, JA students were significantly more likely than their peers to believe that they would graduate from high school, pursue post-secondary education and graduate from college.

  • Preparation for the Real World

    Ninety-five percent of teachers report that students who participate in JA have a better understanding of how the real world operates, and nine out of 10 teachers and volunteers agree that JA programs connect what is learned in the classroom to the outside world.

  • Educator-Respected and Recommended

    Ninety-six percent of teachers agreed or strongly agreed that they would recommend JA to a colleague or friend.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is my classroom time investment?

All JA programs align with State Standards and Common Core. JA's engaging program activities help to meet these goals. Learn more about how JA Programs meet State Standards and Common Core.

JA programs can be delivered solely by teachers or in partnership between trained corporate and community volunteers and teachers working remotely.

Are JA programs effective?

Yes! An independent research firm showed that an average of eight out of 10 high school students reported that JA programs helped reinforce the importance of staying in school.
