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.
