Junior Achievement's Purpose:
Junior Achievement inspires and prepares young people to succeed in a global economy.
Through partnerships with corporations, organizations, schools and individuals, JA continues to inspire and prepare students to succeed in a global economy. K-12th grade students develop knowledge and skills about business and entrepreneurship, personal financial literacy, and workforce readiness. Volunteers share their personal and business experience to bring the JA curriculum to life, helping students understand the real-world application of what they are learning in school -- and, therefore, the necessity of obtaining that high school diploma.
Junior Achievement Sparks Student Success
JA impacted 5 million U.S.. students in more than 200,000 classrooms in 2014-2015.
Our volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to empower students to dream big and reach their potential. With the help of more than 213,000 volunteers nationwide, JA students develop the skills they need to experience the realities and opportunities of work and entrepreneurship in the 21st-century global marketplace.
