Junior Achievement Sparks Student Success

JA impacted over 3,300 Roaring Fork Valley students in more than 170 classrooms during the 2015-16 school year.

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