Junior Achievement of Southern Colorado impacted over 24,000 Southern Colorado students in more than 1,100 classrooms during the 2015-2016 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 900 volunteers, JA students develop the skills they need to experience the realities and opportunities of work and entrepreneurship in the 21st century global marketplace.
JA Biztown and JA Finance Park Capital Campaign is near it's completion.
Check out this video to see what is coming soon to JA Southern Colorado. Please contact Carrie Mckee (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in more information on JA Biztown and JA Finance Park or potential storefront sponsorship.
