About Junior Achievement

JA is not just a mission – it’s a movement. A movement to ensure that our young people are better off than the generations who came before them; to inspire and prepare every student, no matter what their background, to reach their potential.

Junior Achievement graduates are better prepared to make smart choices and are less likely to become burdened by debt. In fact, JA alumni credit Junior Achievement with helping them develop skills and confidence they can use throughout their lives to build professional and personal success.

This school year, JA will transform "I can't" into "I can" for 138,000 local students at no cost to schools. Read the JA Impact Report for more information about how JA is changing students' perceptions of themselves and their worlds in a way that helps them become more successful as adults.
