During the 2017-2018 school year, Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest served 10,025 K-12 Fargo-Moorhead Area students. We partnered with nearly 500 local volunteers who donated 54,314 hours of their time and energy to offer local students the knowledge and skills to be successful in today’s world. The district office is located in the Xcel Energy building. Our Fargo Advisory Board is made up of business and community leaders who oversee the JA programs along with several committees that assist with monitoring growth and strategic direction.
Funding for Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest in the Fargo-Moorhead area comes from business, civic, and individual gifts, grants and special event fundraisers. Special events include JA bigBowl, Giving Hearts Day, Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving, and Think! Trivia.
