Junior Achievement of Wisconsin's volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students in our community to dream big and reach their potential. Together as volunteers, donors and educators we can inspire a generation to believe anything is possible.
