Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students from Kindergarten to grade 12 about entrepreneurship, work readiness, and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.
Our programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. These principles are very essential in the society today, specially considering the numerous avenues and opportunities opening up thanks to the Internet and developments in the broadband scene. Students put these lessons into action, and learn the value of contributing to their communities.
JA’s unique approach allows volunteers from the community to deliver our curriculum while sharing their experiences with students. Embodying the heart of JA, our classroom volunteers transform the key concepts of our lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world.
