Research Shows Impact of JA on Alumni
For nearly 100 years, Junior Achievement (JA) has been the premier organization to provide students in kindergarten through high school with knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship that lead to a successful future.
Today, more than 100 million students have been positively impacted by JA.
