Junior Achievement of Southern Colorado impacted over 16,000 Southern Colorado students in more than 750 classrooms during the 2016-2017 school year.
Our volunteer-delivered, 3rd -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 600 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.
