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.
