JA of WI COVID-19 UPDATE: Volunteer-led Programs Temporarily Suspended

JA 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.

 

Why Junior Achievement?

Junior Achievement (JA) helps students realize the education they are getting today will help them to have a bright future tomorrow. JA's unique, volunteer delivered programs, show students all of the possibilities that lie before them. They realize they can choose different paths: attend college,  enter a specific trade, or start their own business. Through your participation with JA as an organization or as an individual, you will impact the students in our community. In fact, after Junior Achievement programs:

  • 90% are confident managing their finances.
  • 93% earn their high school diploma or GED (10% higher than the national average).
  • 20% more income is earned compared to the general population.
  • 88% are satisfied in their careers.
Why Junior Achievement?
