Support Your Local Students Today!

There's a lot of uncertainty about what will be happening this coming school year. One thing that is certain is Junior Achievement's commitment to inspiring and preparing the next generation for success.

Whether schools in our community are holding classes in-person, remotely, or through some combination, Junior Achievement is putting plans in place to continue inspiring tomorrows with our proven programs and with the support of volunteers and partners.

Education will not stop—however the way we will provide education may change temporarily.

To support our young people, Junior Achievement is offering online resources for free to teachers and parents at We are doing this so that our children can spend more time planning for and dreaming about tomorrow, and less time worrying about today.

In addition, our education team is working tirelessly to create new, innovative learning opportunities to support students, educators and parents during this time. Through alternate-delivery methods, and resources that will support our youth, Junior Achievement of Western PA is dedicated to serving our students as promised. Check out our own at home resource guide full of activities all sourced from JA activities.
