Junior Achievement Sparks Student Success

JA impacted over 4.6 million U.S. students in more than 200,000 classrooms during 2014-2015.

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 218,000 volunteers, JA students develop the skills they need to experience the realities and opportunities of work and entrepreneurship in the 21st-century global marketplace.

Local students develop financial literacy skills at JA Finance Park (KPLC-TV).

Entrepreneurship, Financial Literacy and Work Readiness.

Through a dedicated volunteer network, Junior Achievement (JA) provides in-school and after-school programs for students in grades K-12.  JA offers educational programs that focus on three key content areas: entrepreneurship, work readiness, and financial literacy. Last year Junior Achievement reached over 7 million students in 115 countries.

Junior Achievement uses hands-on experiences to help young people understand the business of life.  In a partnership with business and educators, Junior Achievement brings the real world to students, opening their minds to their potential and preparing them for the world of work.

Please explore our site to discover why our programs are essential to the future of our youth. Learn how you can be a part of this exciting and growing organization.

Are you an educator? Do you want to provide a program to your students that will enhance their learning, reinforce your curriculum and provide a reality check to your students? Visit the Programs tab to see what we can offer you.

Class requests for Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 are now being accepted!
