Junior Achievement is dedicated to educating students in grades K-12 about entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs. JA volunteers from the community deliver curriculum while sharing their experiences with students and transforming the key concepts of JA lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world.
