JA Program Spotlight: JA Economics for Success®

Junior Achievement USA is highlighting each of its 22 programs through a series of blog posts to build awareness for the breadth of our programs.

JA Economics for Success CoverJA Economics for Success (grades 6-8) lays bare for students the heart of a successful economic life: choosing the right career and managing money properly.

Following participation in the program, students will be able to explore their skills, interests, values, and the world of work to make informed education, career, and life decisions. 

The program also will expand their knowledge of personal finance—including smart budgeting, wise credit use, and minimizing financial risk—so they can apply strong financial management skills regardless of their income.

The program, which targets students in middle school, is composed of six 45-minute sessions. Materials are packaged in a self-contained kit that includes detailed plans for the volunteer and materials for 32 students.

Session-specific, student-friendly materials are included to increase student interaction and emphasize JA's experiential approach to learning.

JA programs correlate to state social studies, English, and math standards, and to Common Core State Standards.
