Why Junior Achievement?

Learn how JA gives kids a sense of purpose and belief in themselves, thereby empowering them to take control of their future success.

Junior Achievement programs equip students with the skills needed to succeed in school and in life. We teach them how to manage money, how to prepare for a successful career, and how to start businesses that create jobs. JA empowers students to make a connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world, thereby enhancing the relevance of their classroom learning and increasing their understanding of the value of staying in school.
