Community Resources

Junior Achievement supports the efforts of a number of other non-profit organizations in our community. Although their missions are somewhat different, the common denominators are education and mentoring of children.

 

We provide these links to some other websites as a service both to our community and to these organizations.

The links are not intended to be endorsements of their specific programs but rather an information network to help you better understand the full range of efforts that are going on in our community.
